Represents a method within a symbol store.


Namespace:  System.Diagnostics.SymbolStore
Assembly:  ISymWrapper (in ISymWrapper.dll)

[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, MayLeakOnAbort = true)]
public class SymMethod : ISymbolMethod

The SymMethod type exposes the following members.

Public methodSymMethodInitializes a new instance of the SymMethod class from a raw pointer to the unmanaged ISymUnmanagedMethod interface.

Public propertyRootScopeGets the root lexical scope for the current method. This scope encloses the entire method.
Public propertySequencePointCountGets a count of the sequence points in the method.
Public propertyTokenGets the SymbolToken containing the metadata for the current method.

Public method{dtor}Infrastructure. Releases the resources held by the current instance of the SymMethod object.
Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeReleases unmanaged resources and performs other cleanup operations before the SymMethod is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Overrides Object.Finalize().)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetNamespaceThrows a NotSupportedException in all cases.
Public methodGetOffsetGets the Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) offset within the method that corresponds to the specified position.
Public methodGetParametersGets the parameters for the current method.
Public methodGetRangesGets an array of start and end offset pairs that correspond to the ranges of Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) offsets that a given position covers within this method.
Public methodGetScopeReturns the most enclosing lexical scope corresponding to an offset within a method.
Public methodGetSequencePointsGets the sequence points for the current method and stores the information in the specified arrays.
Public methodGetSourceStartEndThrows a NotSupportedException in all cases.
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodRootScopeInternalInfrastructure. Gets the root lexical scope for the current method. This scope encloses the entire method.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The SymMethod class provides access only to the symbol-related attributes of a method, such as sequence points, lexical scopes, and parameter information. Use the System.Reflection classes to read the type-related attributes of a method.


The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: MayLeakOnAbort. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
