TypeBuilder.MakeByRefType Method

Returns a Type object that represents the current type when passed as a ref parameter (ByRef in Visual Basic).

Namespace:  System.Reflection.Emit
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

abstract MakeByRefType : unit -> Type 
override MakeByRefType : unit -> Type 

Return Value

Type: System.Type
A Type object that represents the current type when passed as a ref parameter (ByRef in Visual Basic).

The MakeByRefType method provides a way to generate ref types (ByRef in Visual Basic) for parameter lists.

NoteNote

Using Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) syntax, if the current TypeBuilder represents MyType, then the type returned by this method would be MyType&.

The following code example creates a dynamic module, an abstract type named Sample, and an abstract method named TestMethod. TestMethod takes a ref parameter (ByRef in Visual Basic) of type Sample, a pointer to type Sample, and an array of type Sample. It returns a two-dimensional array of type Sample. The code example saves the dynamic module to disk, so you can examine it with the Ildasm.exe (MSIL Disassembler).

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
