Delegate Constructor (Object, String)

Initializes a delegate that invokes the specified instance method on the specified class instance.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

protected Delegate(
	Object target,
	string method
)

Parameters

target
Type: System.Object
The class instance on which the delegate invokes method.
method
Type: System.String
The name of the instance method that the delegate represents.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

target is null.

-or-

method is null.

ArgumentException

There was an error binding to the target method.

This constructor cannot be used in application code. To create a delegate by specifying the name of an instance method, use an overload of the CreateDelegate method that specifies a method name and a target object. For example, the CreateDelegate method overload creates a delegate for an instance method with a specified name.

This constructor creates delegates for instance 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.
