Module.ResolveMember Method (Int32, Type[], Type[])

 

Returns the type or member identified by the specified metadata token, in the context defined by the specified generic type parameters.

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

public virtual MemberInfo ResolveMember(
	int metadataToken,
	Type[] genericTypeArguments,
	Type[] genericMethodArguments
)

Parameters

metadataToken
Type: System.Int32

A metadata token that identifies a type or member in the module.

genericTypeArguments
Type: System.Type[]

An array of Type objects representing the generic type arguments of the type where the token is in scope, or null if that type is not generic.

genericMethodArguments
Type: System.Type[]

An array of Type objects representing the generic type arguments of the method where the token is in scope, or null if that method is not generic.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.MemberInfo

A MemberInfo object representing the type or member that is identified by the specified metadata token.

Exception Condition
ArgumentException

metadataToken is not a token for a type or member in the scope of the current module.

-or-

metadataToken is a MethodSpec or TypeSpec whose signature contains element type var (a type parameter of a generic type) or mvar (a type parameter of a generic method), and the necessary generic type arguments were not supplied for either or both of genericTypeArguments and genericMethodArguments.

-or-

metadataToken identifies a property or event.

ArgumentOutOfRangeException

metadataToken is not a valid token in the scope of the current module.

Use the Type.GetGenericArguments method on the type where metadataToken is in scope to obtain an array of generic type arguments for genericTypeArguments. Use the MethodInfo.GetGenericArguments method on the method where metadataToken is in scope to obtain an array of generic type arguments for genericTypeArguments. It is always safe to provide these arguments, even when they are not needed.

System_CAPS_noteNote

Information about metadata tokens can be found in the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) documentation, especially "Partition II: Metadata Definition and Semantics". The documentation is available online; see ECMA C# and Common Language Infrastructure Standards on MSDN and Standard ECMA-335 - Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) on the ECMA Web site.

For code that demonstrates token resolution using the generic context (that is, the generic type parameters of the generic type and/or the generic method in which the token is embedded) see the ResolveMethod(Int32, Type[], Type[]) method.
