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:
FE 06 < T >
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 8.1, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7, Windows Vista SP2, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core Role not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core Role supported with SP1 or later; Itanium not supported)
