Converts a metadata token to its runtime representation, pushing it onto the evaluation stack.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:

Converts a metadata token to its runtime representation.
The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:
The passed token is converted to a RuntimeHandle and pushed onto the stack.
The ldtoken instruction pushes a RuntimeHandle for the specified metadata token. A RuntimeHandle can be a fieldref/fielddef, a methodref/methoddef, or a typeref/typedef.
The value pushed on the stack can be used in calls to Reflection methods in the system class library.
The following Emit method overloads can use the ldtoken opcode:
