This API is not CLS-compliant. The CLS-compliant alternative is SetValue.

Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
<CLSCompliantAttribute(False)> _
Public Overridable Sub SetValueDirect ( _
	obj As TypedReference, _
	value As Object _


Type: System.TypedReference

A TypedReference structure that encapsulates a managed pointer to a location and a runtime representation of the type that can be stored at that location.

Type: System.Object

The value to assign to the field.


_FieldInfo.SetValueDirect(TypedReference, Object)

The caller requires the Common Language Specification (CLS) alternative, but called this method instead.


Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1, this method can be used to access non-public members if the caller has been granted ReflectionPermission with the ReflectionPermissionFlag.RestrictedMemberAccess flag and if the grant set of the non-public members is restricted to the caller’s grant set, or a subset thereof. (See Security Considerations for Reflection.)

To use this functionality, your application should target the .NET Framework 3.5 or later.

Supported in: 4.5.1, 4.5, 4, 3.5, 3.0, 2.0, 1.1, 1.0
