Pushes an unmanaged pointer (type native int) to the native code implementing a specific method onto the evaluation stack.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:

Pushes a pointer to a method referenced by method on the stack.
The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:
The unmanaged pointer to a specific method is pushed onto the stack.
The specific method (method) can be called using the Calli instruction if it references a managed method (or a stub that transitions from managed to unmanaged code).
The value returned points to native code using the calling convention specified by the method metadata token. Thus, a method pointer can be easily passed to unmanaged native code (specifically, as a callback routine).
The following Emit method overload can use the ldftn opcode:
Windows 7, Windows Vista SP1 or later, Windows XP SP3, Windows XP SP2 x64 Edition, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core supported with SP1 or later), Windows Server 2003 SP2
