StackFrame.GetMethod Method

Gets the method in which the frame is executing.

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

public virtual MethodBase GetMethod()

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.MethodBase
The method in which the frame is executing.

The method that is currently executing may be inherited from a base class, although it is called in a derived class. In this case, the ReflectedType property of the MethodBase object that is returned by GetMethod identifies the base class, not the derived class.

The following example demonstrates the use of the GetMethod method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the StackFrame class.

StackFrame fr = new StackFrame(1,true);
StackTrace st = new StackTrace(fr);
EventLog.WriteEntry(fr.GetMethod().Name,
                    st.ToString(),
                    EventLogEntryType.Warning);
