Creates a Type object for the class. After defining fields and methods on the class, CreateType is called in order to load its Type object.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The enclosing type has not been created.
This type is non-abstract and contains an abstract method.
This type is not an abstract class or an interface and has a method without a method body.
The type contains invalid Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) code.
The branch target is specified using a 1-byte offset, but the target is at a distance greater than 127 bytes from the branch.
The type cannot be loaded. For example, it contains a static method that has the calling convention HasThis.
If this type is a nested type, the method must be called on the enclosing type before it is called on the nested type.
If the current type derives from an incomplete type or implements incomplete interfaces, call the method on the parent type and the interface types before calling it on the current type.
If the enclosing type contains a field that is a value type defined as a nested type (for example, a field that is an enumeration defined as a nested type), calling the method on the enclosing type will generate a AppDomain.TypeResolve event. This is because the loader cannot determine the size of the enclosing type until the nested type has been completed. The caller should define a handler for the TypeResolve event to complete the definition of the nested type by calling on the TypeBuilder object that represents the nested type. The code example for this topic shows how to define such an event handler.
A type is created only once, no matter how many times the method is called. All calls return the same Type object.
