The fields of the UnmanagedFunctionPointerAttribute attribute control various aspects of the transition of a delegate to an unmanaged function pointer, and are the same as the fields with identical names in the DllImportAttribute attribute. These fields are optional, but if you do not specify a field name, UnmanagedFunctionPointerAttribute is ignored.
