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
