Loads the address of the local variable at a specific index 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 OD < unsigned int16 >
Loads the address of the local variable at index onto the evaluation stack.
The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:
The address stored in the local variable at the specified index is pushed onto the stack.
The ldloca instruction pushes the address of the local variable number at the passed index onto the stack, where local variables are numbered 0 onwards. The value pushed on the stack is already aligned correctly for use with instructions like Ldind_I and Stind_I. The result is a transient pointer (type *).
The following Emit method overload can use the ldloca 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
