RuntimeHelpers.PrepareMethod Method (RuntimeMethodHandle)
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
You can use the PrepareMethod(RuntimeMethodHandle) method to handle virtual calls made inside a Constrained Execution Region (CER). At JIT compilation time, the common language runtime does not usually have enough information about the target of a virtual call. Therefore, the runtime does not initially prepare that segment of the call graph. If the code using the CER has enough knowledge to determine the target at any point in time before the CER is actually entered, it can call PrepareMethod(RuntimeMethodHandle) to perform the same runtime preparation normally done for a CER rooted at the method specified as an argument.
The classes in System.Runtime.CompilerServices are for compiler writers' use only.
