FieldBuilder Class

Defines and represents a field. This class cannot be inherited.

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

[ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.None)] 
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
public sealed class FieldBuilder : FieldInfo, _FieldBuilder
/** @attribute ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.None) */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
public final class FieldBuilder extends FieldInfo implements _FieldBuilder
ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.None) 
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
public final class FieldBuilder extends FieldInfo implements _FieldBuilder
Not applicable.

Get an instance of FieldBuilder by calling DefineField, DefineInitializedData, or DefineUninitializedData.

NoteNote:

The SetValue method is currently not supported. As a workaround, retrieve the FieldInfo by reflecting on the finished type and call SetValue to set the value of the field.

The following code sample illustrates the use of FieldBuilder.

using System.Threading;
using System.Reflection;
using System.Reflection.Emit;
using System.Security.Permissions;

public class FieldBuilder_Sample
{
   private static Type CreateType(AppDomain currentDomain)

      // Create an assembly.

      AssemblyBuilder myAssembly =
                     currentDomain.DefineDynamicAssembly(myAssemblyName,AssemblyBuilderAccess.Run);
      // Create a dynamic module in Dynamic Assembly.
      ModuleBuilder myModuleBuilder=myAssembly.DefineDynamicModule("MyModule");
      // Define a public class named "MyClass" in the assembly.
      TypeBuilder myTypeBuilder= myModuleBuilder.DefineType("MyClass",TypeAttributes.Public);

      // Define a private String field named "MyField" in the type.
      FieldBuilder myFieldBuilder= myTypeBuilder.DefineField("MyField",
          typeof(string),FieldAttributes.Private|FieldAttributes.Static);
      // Create the constructor.
      Type[] constructorArgs = { typeof(String) };
