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

Public Function GetModule As Module

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.

      Dim myModBuilder As ModuleBuilder = myAsmBuilder.DefineDynamicModule("MathFunctions")

      Dim myTypeBuilder As TypeBuilder = myModBuilder.DefineType("MyMathFunctions", _

      Dim myMthdBuilder As MethodBuilder = myTypeBuilder.DefineMethod("Adder", _
					MethodAttributes.Public, GetType(Integer), _
					New Type() {GetType(Integer), GetType(Integer)})

      ' Create body via ILGenerator here ...

      Dim myNewType As Type = myTypeBuilder.CreateType()

      Dim myModule As [Module] = myMthdBuilder.GetModule()

      Dim myModTypes As Type() = myModule.GetTypes()
      Console.WriteLine("Module: {0}", myModule.Name)
      Console.WriteLine("------- with path {0}", myModule.FullyQualifiedName)
      Console.WriteLine("------- in assembly {0}", myModule.Assembly.FullName)
      Dim myModType As Type
      For Each myModType In  myModTypes
         Console.WriteLine("------- has type {0}", myModType.FullName)
      Next myModType
