Delegate Constructor (Type, String)

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

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

protected Delegate(
	Type target,
	string method
)

Parameters

target
Type: System.Type

The Type representing 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.

ArgumentException

target is not a RuntimeType. See Runtime Types in Reflection.

-or-

target represents an open generic type.

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(Type, Type, String) 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.
