Parameters

typeToken

An array of RuntimeTypeHandle structures representing the generic type arguments of the type where the token is in scope, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if that type is not generic.

methodInstantiationContext

An array of RuntimeTypeHandle structures objects representing the generic type arguments of the method where the token is in scope, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if that method is not generic.
