MethodInfo Class

Discovers the attributes of a method and provides access to method metadata.

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

[SerializableAttribute] 
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
[ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.None)] 
public abstract class MethodInfo : MethodBase, _MethodInfo
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
/** @attribute ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.None) */ 
public abstract class MethodInfo extends MethodBase implements _MethodInfo
SerializableAttribute 
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.None) 
public abstract class MethodInfo extends MethodBase implements _MethodInfo

Instances of MethodInfo are obtained by calling the GetMethods or GetMethod method of a Type object or of an object that derives from Type, or by calling the MakeGenericMethod method of a MethodInfo that represents a generic method definition.

For a list of the invariant conditions for terms specific to generic methods, see the IsGenericMethod property. For a list of the invariant conditions for other terms used in generic reflection, see the IsGenericType property.

Notes to Inheritors When you inherit from MethodInfo, you must override MethodInfo.GetBaseDefinition, MethodInfo.ReturnType, MethodInfo.ReturnTypeCustomAttributes, MethodBase.GetParameters, MethodBase.GetMethodImplementationFlags, MethodBase.MethodHandle, MethodBase.Attributes, MethodBase.Invoke, MemberInfo.Name, MemberInfo.MemberType, MemberInfo.DeclaringType, MemberInfo.ReflectedType, MemberInfo.GetCustomAttributes, MemberInfo.GetCustomAttributes, and MemberInfo.IsDefined.

This type is safe for multithreaded operations.
