Delegate.CreateDelegate Method (Type, Object, String, Boolean)

Creates a delegate of the specified type that represents the specified instance method to invoke on the specified class instance with the specified case-sensitivity.

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

public static Delegate CreateDelegate(
	Type type,
	Object target,
	string method,
	bool ignoreCase
)

Parameters

type
Type: System.Type

The Type of delegate to create.

target
Type: System.Object

The class instance on which method is invoked.

method
Type: System.String

The name of the instance method that the delegate is to represent.

ignoreCase
Type: System.Boolean

A Boolean indicating whether to ignore the case when comparing the name of the method.

Return Value

Type: System.Delegate
A delegate of the specified type that represents the specified instance method to invoke on the specified class instance.

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

type is null.

-or-

target is null.

-or-

method is null.

ArgumentException

type does not inherit MulticastDelegate.

-or-

type is not a RuntimeType. See Runtime Types in Reflection.

-or-

method is not an instance method.

-or-

method cannot be bound, for example because it cannot be found.

MissingMethodException

The Invoke method of type is not found.

MethodAccessException

The caller does not have the permissions necessary to access method.

This method creates delegates for instance methods only. An instance method is a method that is associated with an instance of a class; a static method is a method that is associated with the class itself.

This method overload is equivalent to calling the CreateDelegate(Type, Object, String, Boolean, Boolean) method overload, specifying true for throwOnBindFailure.

NoteNote

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1, this method can be used to access non-public methods if the caller has been granted ReflectionPermission with the ReflectionPermissionFlag.RestrictedMemberAccess flag and if the grant set of the non-public methods is restricted to the caller’s grant set, or a subset thereof. (See Security Considerations for Reflection.)

To use this functionality, your application should target the .NET Framework 3.5 or later.
