FieldInfo.GetFieldFromHandle Method (RuntimeFieldHandle)

Gets a FieldInfo for the field represented by the specified handle.

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

Public Shared Function GetFieldFromHandle ( _
	handle As RuntimeFieldHandle _
) As FieldInfo


Type: System.RuntimeFieldHandle

A RuntimeFieldHandle structure that contains the handle to the internal metadata representation of a field.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.FieldInfo
A FieldInfo object representing the field specified by handle.


handle is invalid.

Handles are valid only in the application domain in which they were obtained.

The following code example uses the Type.GetFields method to get FieldInfo objects for the fields of a type, gets a RuntimeFieldHandle structure for each field, and then retrieves the FieldInfo objects from the handles using this overload of the GetFieldFromHandle method.
