TypedReference.MakeTypedReference Method

Makes a TypedReference for a field identified by a specified object and list of field descriptions.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
public static TypedReference MakeTypedReference(
	Object target,
	FieldInfo[] flds
)

Parameters

target
Type: System.Object
An object that contains the field described by the first element of flds.
flds
Type: System.Reflection.FieldInfo[]
A list of field descriptions where each element describes a field that contains the field described by the succeeding element. Each described field must be a value type. The field descriptions must be RuntimeFieldInfo objects supplied by the type system.

Return Value

Type: System.TypedReference
A TypedReference for the field described by the last element of flds.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

target or flds is null.

-or-

An element of flds is null.

ArgumentException

The flds array has no elements.

-or-

An element of flds is not a RuntimeFieldInfo.

-or-

The IsInitOnly or IsStatic property of an element of flds is true.

MissingMemberException

Parameter target does not contain the field described by the first element of flds, or an element of flds describes a field that is not contained in the field described by the succeeding element of flds.

-or-

The field described by an element of flds is not a value type.

The MakeTypedReference method returns a typed reference to some terminal field, where the target parameter contains the field described by the first element of flds, the field described by the first element of flds contains the field described by the second element of flds, and so on until the terminal field is reached.
