Module.ResolveMember Method (Int32, Type[], Type[])

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Returns the type or member identified by the specified metadata token.

Namespace: System.Reflection
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public MemberInfo ResolveMember (
	int metadataToken,
	Type[] genericTypeArguments,
	Type[] genericMethodArguments
)
public MemberInfo ResolveMember (
	int metadataToken, 
	Type[] genericTypeArguments, 
	Type[] genericMethodArguments
)
public function ResolveMember (
	metadataToken : int, 
	genericTypeArguments : Type[], 
	genericMethodArguments : Type[]
) : MemberInfo

Parameters

metadataToken

A metadata token that identifies a type or member in the module.

genericTypeArguments

An array of Type objects representing the generic type arguments of the type where the token is in scope, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if that type is not generic.

genericMethodArguments

An array of Type objects representing the generic type arguments of the method where the token is in scope, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if that method is not generic.

Return Value

A MemberInfo object representing the type or member that is identified by the specified metadata token.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentException

metadataToken is not a valid token in the scope of the current module.

-or-

metadataToken is not a token for a type or member in the scope of the current module.

-or-

metadataToken is a MethodSpec or TypeSpec whose signature contains element type var or mvar, and the necessary generic type arguments were not supplied for either or both of genericTypeArguments and genericMethodArguments.

-or-

metadataToken identifies a property or event.

BadImageFormatException

The PE file format is invalid.

Use the Type.GetGenericArguments method on the type where metadataToken is in scope to obtain an array of generic type arguments for genericTypeArguments. Use the MethodInfo.GetGenericArguments method on the method where metadataToken is in scope to obtain an array of generic type arguments for genericTypeArguments. It is always safe to provide these arguments, even when they are not needed.

NoteNote

Information about metadata tokens can be found in the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) documentation, especially "Partition II: Metadata Definition and Semantics". The documentation is available online at http://msdn.microsoft.com/net/ecma/ and http://www.ecma-international.org/publications/standards/Ecma-335.htm.
