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


Type: System.Object

The class instance on which the delegate invokes method.

Type: System.String

The name of the instance method that the delegate represents.

Exception Condition

target is null.


method is null.


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(Type, Object, String) 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.


when invoked late-bound through mechanisms such as Type.InvokeMember. Associated enumeration: ReflectionPermissionFlag.MemberAccess
