InvalidOperationException

The current method is generic, but is not a generic method definition. That is, the IsGenericMethod property is true, but the IsGenericMethodDefinition property is false.

Use this method to set the return type of a generic method, when the return type is specified by one of the generic type parameters of the method. If the return type has optional or required custom modifiers, such as IsConst, use the SetSignature(Type, Type[], Type[], Type[], Type[][], Type[][]) method overload.

Calling this method replaces a return type established using the TypeBuilder.DefineMethod method.

The following code example uses the DefineGenericParameters method to make a method generic. The SetParameters method is used to give the method one parameter, whose type will be specified by the first generic type parameter. The SetReturnType method is used to give the method a return type, specified by the second generic type parameter.

This code is part of a larger example provided for the DefineGenericParameters method.
