ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

body is Nothing.

parameters does not contain the same number of elements as the list of parameters for TDelegate.

-or-

The Type property of an element of parameters is not assignable from the type of the corresponding parameter type of TDelegate.

The number of parameters for the delegate type TDelegate must equal the number of elements in parameters.

The elements of parameters must be reference equal to the parameter expressions in body.

The Type property of the resulting object represents the type TDelegate. If parameters is Nothing, the Parameters property of the resulting object is an empty collection.
