Binder::SelectMethod Method (BindingFlags, array<MethodBase^>^, array<Type^>^, array<ParameterModifier>^)

 

Selects a method from the given set of methods, based on the argument type.

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

public:
virtual MethodBase^ SelectMethod(
	BindingFlags bindingAttr,
	array<MethodBase^>^ match,
	array<Type^>^ types,
	array<ParameterModifier>^ modifiers
) abstract

Parameters

bindingAttr
Type: System.Reflection::BindingFlags

A bitwise combination of BindingFlags values.

match
Type: array<System.Reflection::MethodBase^>^

The set of methods that are candidates for matching. For example, when a Binder object is used by Type::InvokeMember, this parameter specifies the set of methods that reflection has determined to be possible matches, typically because they have the correct member name. The default implementation provided by Type::DefaultBinder changes the order of this array.

types
Type: array<System::Type^>^

The parameter types used to locate a matching method.

modifiers
Type: array<System.Reflection::ParameterModifier>^

An array of parameter modifiers that enable binding to work with parameter signatures in which the types have been modified.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection::MethodBase^

The matching method, if found; otherwise, null.

Exception Condition
AmbiguousMatchException

For the default binder, match contains multiple methods that are equally good matches for the parameter types described by types. For example, the array in types contains a Type object for MyClass and the array in match contains a method that takes a base class of MyClass and a method that takes an interface that MyClass implements.

ArgumentException

For the default binder, match is null or an empty array.

-or-

An element of types derives from Type, but is not of type RuntimeType.

This method should return null if no method matches the criteria. This method controls the selection provided by the GetConstructor and GetMethod methods on Type.
