Module.ResolveMember Method (Int32)

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

Namespace:  System.Reflection
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public MemberInfo ResolveMember(
	int metadataToken
)

Parameters

metadataToken
Type: System.Int32

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

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.MemberInfo
A MemberInfo object representing the type or member that is identified by the specified metadata token.
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

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 (a type parameter of a generic type) or mvar (a type parameter of a generic method).

-or-

metadataToken identifies a property or event.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

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

To resolve a metadata token for a MethodSpec or TypeSpec whose signature contains element type ELEMENT_TYPE_VAR or ELEMENT_TYPE_MVAR, use the ResolveMember(Int32, Type[], Type[]) method overload, which allows you to supply the necessary context. That is, when you are resolving a metadata token for a member that depends on the generic type parameters of the generic type and/or the generic method in which the token is embedded, you must use the overload that allows you to supply those type parameters.

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; see ECMA C# and Common Language Infrastructure Standards on MSDN and Standard ECMA-335 - Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) on the ECMA Web site.

For code that demonstrates token resolution using the generic context (that is, the generic type parameters of the generic type and/or the generic method in which the token is embedded) see the ResolveMethod(Int32, Type[], Type[]) method.
