FE OD < unsigned int16 >

ldloca index

Loads the address of the local variable at index onto the evaluation stack.

The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:

  1. The address stored in the local variable at the specified index is pushed onto the stack.

The ldloca instruction pushes the address of the local variable number at the passed index onto the stack, where local variables are numbered 0 onwards. The value pushed on the stack is already aligned correctly for use with instructions like Ldind_I and Stind_I. The result is a transient pointer (type *).

The following Emit method overload can use the ldloca opcode:

  • ILGenerator.Emit(OpCode, short)
