The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:

Format Assembly Format Description
08 ldloc.2 Loads the local variable at index 2 onto the evaluation stack.

The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:

  1. The local variable value at the index 2 is pushed onto the stack.

ldloc.2 is an especially efficient encoding for Ldloc, allowing access to the local variable at index 2.

The type of the value is the same as the type of the local variable, which is specified in the method header. Local variables that are 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 constructor overload can use the ldloc.2 opcode:

  • ILGenerator.Emit(OpCode)
