	Type target,
	string method

The type of object on which method is defined.

Type: System.String

The name of the static method for which a delegate is created.

Exception Condition

Cannot create an instance of an abstract class, or this member was invoked with a late-binding mechanism.

This constructor cannot be used in application code. To create a delegate by specifying the name of a static method, use an overload of the Delegate.CreateDelegate method that specifies a method name but does not specify a target object. For example, the Delegate.CreateDelegate(Type, Type, String) method overload creates a static delegate for a method with a specified name.


when invoked late-bound through mechanisms such as Type.InvokeMember. Associated enumeration: ReflectionPermissionFlag.MemberAccess
