GetMethod Method (String, BindingFlags)
[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]
Searches for the specified method, using the specified binding constraints.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
abstract GetMethod : name:string * bindingAttr:BindingFlags -> MethodInfo override GetMethod : name:string * bindingAttr:BindingFlags -> MethodInfo
- Type: System..::..String
The string containing the name of the method to get.
Return ValueType: System.Reflection..::..MethodInfo
An object representing the method that matches the specified requirements, if found; otherwise, nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
The following BindingFlags filter flags can be used to define which methods to include in the search:
You must specify either BindingFlags.Instance or BindingFlags.Static in order to get a return.
Specify BindingFlags.Public to include public methods in the search.
Specify BindingFlags.NonPublic to include non-public methods (that is, private, internal, and protected methods) in the search.
Specify BindingFlags.FlattenHierarchy to include public and protected static members up the hierarchy; private static members in inherited classes are not included.
The following BindingFlags modifier flags can be used to change how the search works:
BindingFlags.IgnoreCase to ignore the case of name.
BindingFlags.DeclaredOnly to search only the methods declared on the Type, not methods that were simply inherited.
See System.Reflection..::..BindingFlags for more information.
If the current T:System.Type represents a constructed generic type, this method returns the MethodInfo with the type parameters replaced by the appropriate type arguments.
If the current Type represents a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or generic method, this method searches the methods of the class constraint, or the methods of Object if there is no class constraint.
