ILGenerator.ILOffset Property

.NET Framework (current version)

Gets the current offset, in bytes, in the Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) stream that is being emitted by the ILGenerator.

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

public virtual int ILOffset { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32

The offset in the MSIL stream at which the next instruction will be emitted.

This method is transparent, and can be called from partially trusted code.

If the ILOffset property is accessed before any MSIL instructions have been emitted, it returns 0 (zero).

When MSIL is generated for dynamic languages, this property can be used to map offsets in the MSIL stream to source code line numbers. The resulting information can be used to provide stack traces when exceptions are thrown.
