IMetaDataImport::FindMethod Method

Gets a pointer to the MethodDef token for the method that is enclosed by the specified Type and that has the specified name and metadata signature.

HRESULT FindMethod (
   [in]  mdTypeDef          td,
   [in]  LPCWSTR            szName, 
   [in]  PCCOR_SIGNATURE    pvSigBlob, 
   [in]  ULONG              cbSigBlob, 
   [out] mdMethodDef        *pmb


[in] The mdTypeDef token for the type (a class or interface) that encloses the member to search for. If this value is mdTokenNil, then the lookup is done for a global function.


[in] The name of the method to search for.


[in] A pointer to the binary metadata signature of the method.


[in] The size in bytes of pvSigBlob.


[out] A pointer to the matching MethodDef token.

You specify the method using its enclosing class or interface (td), its name (szName), and optionally its signature (pvSigBlob). There might be multiple methods with the same name in a class or interface. In that case, pass the method's signature to find the unique match.

The signature passed to FindMethod must have been generated in the current scope, because signatures are bound to a particular scope. A signature can embed a token that identifies the enclosing class or value type. The token is an index into the local TypeDef table. You cannot build a run-time signature outside the context of the current scope and use that signature as input to input to FindMethod.

FindMethod finds only methods that were defined directly in the class or interface; it does not find inherited methods.
