MethodBuilder.GetModule Method

Returns a reference to the module that contains this method.

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

public Module GetModule ()
public Module GetModule ()
public function GetModule () : Module

Return Value

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",
                TypeAttributes.Public);

MethodBuilder myMthdBuilder = myTypeBuilder.DefineMethod("Adder",
                MethodAttributes.Public,
                typeof(int),
                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);
}

ModuleBuilder myModBuilder = myAsmBuilder.DefineDynamicModule(
    "MathFunctions");
TypeBuilder myTypeBuilder = myModBuilder.DefineType("MyMathFunctions",
    TypeAttributes.Public);
MethodBuilder myMthdBuilder = myTypeBuilder.DefineMethod("Adder",
    MethodAttributes.Public,int.class.ToType(),
    new Type[] { int.class.ToType(),int.class.ToType() });

// Create body via ILGenerator here ...
Type myNewType = myTypeBuilder.CreateType();
Module myModule = myMthdBuilder.GetModule();
Type myModTypes[] = myModule.GetTypes();

Console.WriteLine("Module: {0}", myModule.get_Name());
Console.WriteLine("------- with path {0}", 
    myModule.get_FullyQualifiedName());
Console.WriteLine("------- in assembly {0}",
    myModule.get_Assembly().get_FullName());
for (int iCtr = 0; iCtr < myModTypes.length; iCtr++) {
    Type myModType = myModTypes[iCtr];
    Console.WriteLine("------- has type {0}",myModType.get_FullName());
}
