Loads an argument (referenced by a specified index value) onto the stack.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:
FE 09 < unsigned int16 >
Load argument at index onto stack.
The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:
The argument value at index is pushed onto the stack.
The ldarg instruction pushes the argument indexed at index, where arguments are indexed from 0 onwards, onto the evaluation stack. The ldarg instruction can be used to load a value type or a primitive value onto the stack by copying it from an incoming argument. The type of the argument value is the same as the type of the argument, as specified by the current method's signature.
For procedures that take a variable-length argument list, the ldarg instruction can be used only for the initial fixed arguments, not those in the variable part of the signature (see the Arglist instruction for more details).
Arguments that hold an integer value smaller than 4 bytes long are expanded to type int32 when they are loaded onto the stack. Floating-point values are expanded to their native size (type F).
The following Emit method overload can use the ldarg opcode:
Windows 7, Windows Vista SP1 or later, Windows XP SP3, Windows XP SP2 x64 Edition, Windows Server 2008 (Server Core not supported), Windows Server 2008 R2 (Server Core supported with SP1 or later), Windows Server 2003 SP2
The .NET Framework does not support all versions of every platform. For a list of the supported versions, see .NET Framework System Requirements.
