)

Parameters

type

The type of delegate to create.
target

The class that implements method.
method
Type: System.String
The name of the static method that the delegate is to represent.
ignoreCase
Type: System.Boolean

throwOnBindFailure
Type: System.Boolean

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

type is null.

-or-

target is null.

-or-

method is null.

ArgumentException

type does not inherit MulticastDelegate.

-or-

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

-or-

target is not a RuntimeType.

-or-

target is an open generic type. That is, its ContainsGenericParameters property is true.

-or-

method is not a static method (Shared method in Visual Basic).

-or-

method cannot be bound; for example, because it cannot be found, and throwOnBindFailure is true.

MissingMethodException

The Invoke method of type is not found.

MethodAccessException

The caller does not have access to method.

-or-

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

This method 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.

In Silverlight, method must specify an accessible method.

Platform Notes

 CreateDelegate throws MissingMethodException when attempting to create a delegate with incorrect arguments. Delegate.CreateDelegate throws TargetInvocationException when called on a null object. Delegate.CreateDelegate throws MissingMethodException instead of ArgumentException for non-instance methods.
