member SetMethodBody : 
        il:byte[] * 
        maxStack:int * 
        localSignature:byte[] * 
        exceptionHandlers:IEnumerable<ExceptionHandler> * 
        tokenFixups:IEnumerable<int> -> unit


Type: System.Byte[]

An array that contains valid MSIL instructions.

Type: System.Int32

Type: System.Byte[]

An array of bytes that contain the serialized local variable structure. Specify a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the method has no local variables.

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable(ExceptionHandler)

A collection that contains the exception handlers for the method. Specify a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the method has no exception handlers.

A collection of values that represent offsets in il, each of which specifies the beginning of a token that may be modified. Specify a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the method has no tokens that have to be modified.


il is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


maxStack is negative.


One of exceptionHandlers specifies an offset outside of il.


One of tokenFixups specifies an offset that is outside the il array.
