public unsafe void SetLocalSignature(
	byte* localSignature,
	int signatureSize


Type: System.Byte*

An array that contains the layout of local variables for the associated DynamicMethod.

Type: System.Int32

The number of bytes in the signature.

Exception Condition

localSignature is null and signatureSize is greater than 0.


signatureSize is less than 0.

The local variable signature describes the layout of a method's local variables. To simplify construction of the local variable signature, use the static (Shared in Visual Basic) SignatureHelper.GetLocalVarSigHelper method to get a SignatureHelper for the local signature.

For information on local variable signatures, see the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) documentation, especially "Partition II: Metadata Definition and Semantics". The documentation is available online; see ECMA C# and Common Language Infrastructure Standards on MSDN and Standard ECMA-335 - Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) on the Ecma International Web site.
