A method is generic if it has type parameters. You can make a method generic by calling the DefineGenericParameters method to add type parameters. This change cannot be reversed.

The following code example displays the status of a method. This code is part of a larger example provided for the DefineGenericParameters method.

// Use the IsGenericMethod property to find out if a
// dynamic method is generic, and IsGenericMethodDefinition
// to find out if it defines a generic method.
Console.WriteLine("Is DemoMethod generic? {0}", 
Console.WriteLine("Is DemoMethod a generic method definition? {0}",
