Property Value

true if the current MethodBuilder object represents the definition of a generic method; otherwise, false.

A MethodBuilder can only be used to create generic method definitions; it cannot be used to create a constructed generic method directly. However, a subclass of MethodBuilder might represent a constructed generic method.

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}", _
