_Type.GetConstructor Method (BindingFlags, Binder, CallingConventions, Type[], ParameterModifier[])

Provides COM objects with version-independent access to the Type.GetConstructor method.

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

ConstructorInfo GetConstructor(
	BindingFlags bindingAttr,
	Binder binder,
	CallingConventions callConvention,
	Type[] types,
	ParameterModifier[] modifiers
)

Parameters

bindingAttr
Type: System.Reflection.BindingFlags
A bitmask comprised of one or more BindingFlags that specify how the search is conducted.
-or-
Zero, to return null.
binder
Type: System.Reflection.Binder
A Binder object that defines a set of properties and enables binding, which can involve selection of an overloaded method, coercion of argument types, and invocation of a member through reflection.
-or-
null, to use the DefaultBinder.
callConvention
Type: System.Reflection.CallingConventions
The CallingConventions object that specifies the set of rules to use regarding the order and layout of arguments, how the return value is passed, what registers are used for arguments, and the stack is cleaned up.
types
Type: System.Type[]
An array of Type objects representing the number, order, and type of the parameters for the constructor to get.
-or-
An empty array of the type Type (that is, Type[] types = new Type[0]) to get a constructor that takes no parameters.
modifiers
Type: System.Reflection.ParameterModifier[]
An array of ParameterModifier objects representing the attributes associated with the corresponding element in the types array. The default binder does not process this parameter.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.ConstructorInfo
A ConstructorInfo object representing the constructor that matches the specified requirements, if found; otherwise, null.

This method is for access to managed classes from unmanaged code, and should not be called from managed code.

The Type.GetConstructor method searches for a constructor whose parameters match the specified argument types and modifiers, using the specified binding constraints and the specified calling convention.
