MethodBase.GetMethodFromHandle Method (RuntimeMethodHandle, RuntimeTypeHandle)


Gets a MethodBase object for the constructor or method represented by the specified handle, for the specified generic type.

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

public static MethodBase GetMethodFromHandle(
	RuntimeMethodHandle handle,
	RuntimeTypeHandle declaringType


Type: System.RuntimeMethodHandle

A handle to the internal metadata representation of a constructor or method.

Type: System.RuntimeTypeHandle

A handle to the generic type that defines the constructor or method.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.MethodBase

A MethodBase object representing the method or constructor specified by handle, in the generic type specified by declaringType.

Exception Condition

handle is invalid.

Handles are valid only in the application domain in which they were obtained.

A RuntimeMethodHandle structure for a constructor or method of a generic type can represent different MethodBase objects, depending on the types specified for the type parameters of the generic type. For example, if class G<T> (class G(Of T) in Visual Basic, generic <T> ref class G in C++) has a method that returns type T, the MethodBase object for that method in a constructed class such as G<int> is different from the MethodBase object for that method in the generic type definition.


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