Format Assembly Format Description
FE 1D refanytype Pushes the type token stored in a typed reference.

The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:

  1. A value type reference is pushed onto the stack.
  2. The typed reference is popped from the stack and its corresponding type token retrieved.
  3. The type token is pushed onto the stack.

A typed reference contains a type token and an address to an object instance.

The refanytype instruction retrieves the type token embedded in the typed reference. See the Mkrefany instruction for information on creating typed references.

The following Emit constructor overload can use the refanytype opcode:

  • ILGenerator.Emit(OpCode)
