Delegate Constructor (Type, String)

Updated: June 2010

Initializes a delegate that invokes the specified static method from the specified class.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
[SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute]
protected Delegate(
	Type target,
	string method
)

Parameters

target
Type: System.Type
The class that defines method.
method
Type: System.String
The name of the static method that the delegate represents.
ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

target is null.

-or-

method is null.

MethodAccessException

Application code attempts to access this member late-bound, for example, by using the Type.InvokeMember method.

This constructor cannot be used in application code. To create a delegate by specifying the name of a static method, use an overload of the CreateDelegate method that specifies a method name but does not specify a target object. For example, the CreateDelegate method overload creates a static delegate for a method with a specified name.

This constructor creates delegates for static methods only. An instance method is a method that is associated with an instance of a class; a static method is a method that is associated with the class itself.
