DynamicMethod.CreateDelegate Method (Type)

 

Completes the dynamic method and creates a delegate that can be used to execute it.

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

[<ComVisibleAttribute(true)>]
override CreateDelegate : 
        delegateType:Type -> Delegate

Parameters

delegateType
Type: System.Type

A delegate type whose signature matches that of the dynamic method.

Return Value

Type: System.Delegate

A delegate of the specified type, which can be used to execute the dynamic method.

Exception Condition
InvalidOperationException

The dynamic method has no method body.

ArgumentException

delegateType has the wrong number of parameters or the wrong parameter types.

Calling the CreateDelegate method or the Invoke method completes the dynamic method. Any further attempt to alter the dynamic method, such as modifying parameter definitions or emitting more Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL), is ignored; no exception is thrown.

To create a method body for a dynamic method when you have your own MSIL generator, call the GetDynamicILInfo method to obtain a DynamicILInfo object. If you do not have your own MSIL generator, call the GetILGenerator method to obtain an ILGenerator object that can be used to generate the method body.

The following code example creates a dynamic method that takes two parameters. The example emits a simple function body that prints the first parameter to the console, and the example uses the second parameter as the return value of the method. The example completes the method by creating a delegate, invokes the delegate with different parameters, and finally invokes the dynamic method using the Invoke method.
