GenericTypeParameterBuilder.MakePointerType Method

Returns a Type object that represents a pointer to the current generic type parameter.

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

abstract MakePointerType : unit -> Type  
override MakePointerType : unit -> Type

Return Value

Type: System.Type
A Type object that represents a pointer to the current generic type parameter.

The MakePointerType method provides a way to generate pointer types for parameter lists.

The following code example creates a dynamic module, an abstract generic type named Sample with one type parameter, T, and an abstract method named TestMethod. TestMethod takes a ref parameter (ByRef in Visual Basic) of type T, a pointer to type T, and an array of T. This method returns a two-dimensional array of T. The code example saves the dynamic module to disk, so you can examine it using the MSIL Disassembler (Ildasm.exe).

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
