Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public static Delegate CreateDelegate(
	Type type,
	Type target,
	string method
)

Parameters

type
Type: System.Type

The Type of delegate to create.

target
Type: System.Type

The Type representing the class that implements method.

method
Type: System.String

The name of the static method that the delegate is to represent.

Return Value

Type: System.Delegate
A delegate of the specified type that represents the specified static method of the specified class.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

type is null.

-or-

target is null.

-or-

method is null.

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.

NoteNote:

Starting with the .NET Framework version 2.0 Service Pack 1, this method can be used to access non-public methods if the caller has been granted ReflectionPermission with the ReflectionPermissionFlag.RestrictedMemberAccess flag and if the grant set of the non-public methods 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 version 3.5. For more information, see .NET Framework 3.5 Architecture.

Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP SP2, Windows XP Media Center Edition, Windows XP Professional x64 Edition, Windows XP Starter Edition, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2000 SP4, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 98

The .NET Framework and .NET Compact Framework do not support all versions of every platform. For a list of the supported versions, see .NET Framework System Requirements.
