[This documentation is for preview only, and is subject to change in later releases. Blank topics are included as placeholders.]

Searches for the specified public method whose parameters match the specified argument types.

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

member GetMethod : 
        name:string * 
        types:Type[] -> MethodInfo 

Parameters

name
Type: System..::..String
The string containing the name of the public method to get.
types
Type: array<System..::..Type>[]()[][]
An array of Type objects representing the number, order, and type of the parameters for the method to get.
-or-
An empty array of Type objects (as provided by the EmptyTypes field) to get a method that takes no parameters.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection..::..MethodInfo
An object representing the public method whose parameters match the specified argument types, if found; otherwise, nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

The search for name is case-sensitive. The search includes public static and public instance methods.

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.
