The following code example displays the declaring type of a dynamic method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DynamicMethod class.

// Display the declaring type, which is always null for dynamic
// methods.
if (hello.DeclaringType == null)
{
    Console.WriteLine("\r\nDeclaringType is always null for dynamic methods.");
}
else
{
    Console.WriteLine("DeclaringType: {0}", hello.DeclaringType);
}
