Type.GetMethod Method (String)
Searches for the public method with the specified name.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System.String
The string containing the name of the public method to get.
Return ValueType: System.Reflection.MethodInfo
An object that represents the public method with the specified name, if found; otherwise, null.
The search for name is case-sensitive. The search includes public static and public instance methods.
You cannot omit parameters when looking up constructors and methods. You can only omit parameters when invoking.
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.
For generic methods, do not include the type arguments in name. For example, the C# code GetMember("MyMethod<int>") searches for a member with the text name "MyMethod<int>", rather than for a method named MyMethod that has one generic argument of type int.
The following example gets a method named MethodA.
