Pushes an unmanaged pointer (type natural int) to the native code implementing a specific method onto the evaluation stack.
[Visual Basic] Public Shared ReadOnly Ldftn As OpCode [C#] public static readonly OpCode Ldftn; [C++] public: static OpCode Ldftn; [JScript] public static var Ldftn : OpCode;
The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:
|FE 06 < T >||ldftn method||Pushes a pointer to a method referenced by method on the stack.|
The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:
- The unmanaged pointer to a specific method is pushed onto the stack.
The specific method (method) can be called using the Calli instruction if it references a managed method (or a stub that transitions from managed to unmanaged code).
The value returned points to native code using the calling convention specified by the method metadata token. Thus, a method pointer can be easily passed to unmanaged native code (specifically, as a callback routine).
The following Emit constructor overload can use the ldftn opcode:
- ILGenerator.Emit(OpCode, MethodInfo)
