TypeBuilder.MakePointerType Method

Returns a Type object that represents the type of an unmanaged pointer to the current type.

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

abstract MakePointerType : unit -> Type  
override MakePointerType : unit -> Type

Return Value

Type: System.Type
A Type object that represents the type of an unmanaged pointer to the current type.

The MakePointerType method provides a way to generate pointer types 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 (IL Disassembler).

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