Return Value

Type: System.Linq.Expressions.MethodCallExpression
A MethodCallExpression that has the NodeType property equal to Call, the Method property set to the MethodInfo that represents the specified static (Shared in Visual Basic) method, and the Arguments property set to the specified arguments.

ExceptionCondition

type or methodName is null.

InvalidOperationException

No method whose name is methodName, whose type parameters match typeArguments, and whose parameter types match arguments is found in type or its base types.

-or-
