Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

type is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

-or-

target is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

-or-

method is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

ArgumentException

type does not inherit MulticastDelegate.

-or-

type is not a RuntimeType. See Runtime Types in Reflection.

-or-

target is not a RuntimeType.

-or-

target is an open generic type. That is, its ContainsGenericParameters property is true.

-or-

method is not a static method (Shared method in Visual Basic).

-or-

method cannot be bound, for example because it cannot be found, and throwOnBindFailure is true.

MissingMethodException

The Invoke method of type is not found.

MethodAccessException

The caller does not have the permissions necessary to access method.

This method creates delegates for static methods only. An instance method is a method that is associated with an instance of a class; a static method is a method that is associated with the class itself.

This method overload is equivalent to calling the CreateDelegate(Type,Type,String,Boolean,Boolean) method overload, specifying false for ignoreCase and true for throwOnBindFailure.
