Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.Module
Returns a reference to the module that contains this method.

The sample code below illustrates the usage of the GetModule method to retrieve information about a dynamically-generated module.

	ModuleBuilder myModBuilder = myAsmBuilder.DefineDynamicModule("MathFunctions");

	TypeBuilder myTypeBuilder = myModBuilder.DefineType("MyMathFunctions",

	MethodBuilder myMthdBuilder = myTypeBuilder.DefineMethod("Adder",
					new Type[] { typeof(int),
						     typeof(int) });

	// Create body via ILGenerator here ...

	Type myNewType = myTypeBuilder.CreateType();

	Module myModule = myMthdBuilder.GetModule();

 	Type[] myModTypes = myModule.GetTypes();
	Console.WriteLine("Module: {0}", myModule.Name);
	Console.WriteLine("------- with path {0}", myModule.FullyQualifiedName);
	Console.WriteLine("------- in assembly {0}", myModule.Assembly.FullName);
	foreach (Type myModType in myModTypes)
		Console.WriteLine("------- has type {0}", myModType.FullName);
