Module.ResolveField Method (Int32)

Returns the field identified by the specified metadata token.

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

public FieldInfo ResolveField(
	int metadataToken
)

Parameters

metadataToken
Type: System.Int32
A metadata token that identifies a field in the module.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.FieldInfo
A FieldInfo object representing the field that is identified by the specified metadata token.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

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

-or-

metadataToken identifies a field whose parent TypeSpec has a signature containing element type var (a type parameter of a generic type) or mvar (a type parameter of a generic method).

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

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

To resolve a metadata token that identifies a field whose parent TypeSpec has a signature containing element type ELEMENT_TYPE_VAR or ELEMENT_TYPE_MVAR, use the ResolveField(Int32, Type[], Type[]) method overload, which allows you to supply the necessary context. That is, when you are resolving a metadata token for a field 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.
