Marshal.Prelink Method

Executes one-time method setup tasks without calling the method.

Namespace:  System.Runtime.InteropServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public static void Prelink(
	MethodInfo m
)

Parameters

m
Type: System.Reflection.MethodInfo

The method to be checked.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

The m parameter is null.

ArgumentException

The m parameter is not a MethodInfo object.

Setup tasks provide early initialization and are performed automatically when the target method is invoked. First-time tasks include the following:

  • Verifying that the platform invoke metadata is correctly formatted.

  • Verifying that all the managed types are valid parameters of platform invoke functions.

  • Locating and loading the unmanaged DLL into the process.

  • Locating the entry point in the process.

Calling Prelink on a method outside of platform invoke has no effect. To execute setup tasks on all platform invoke methods in a type, use Marshal.PrelinkAll.
