Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

'Declaration
Public Function DefineMethod ( _
	name As String, _
	attributes As MethodAttributes, _
	callingConvention As CallingConventions _
) As MethodBuilder

Parameters

name
Type: System.String
The name of the method. name cannot contain embedded nulls.
attributes
Type: System.Reflection.MethodAttributes
The attributes of the method.
callingConvention
Type: System.Reflection.CallingConventions
The calling convention of the method.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.Emit.MethodBuilder
The defined method.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentException

The length of name is zero.

-or-

The type of the parent of this method is an interface and this method is not virtual (Overridable in Visual Basic).

ArgumentNullException

name is Nothing.

InvalidOperationException

The type was previously created using CreateType.

-or-

For the current dynamic type, the IsGenericType property is true, but the IsGenericTypeDefinition property is false.

Use this method overload when you do not know the method signature at the time you define the method. For example, the parameter types and return type of a generic method might be specified by the method's generic type parameters, which must be defined after the method has been added to the type. The parameters and return type of the method can be set later using the MethodBuilder.SetSignature method.
