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

virtual property int MetadataToken {
	int get ();
/** @property */
public int get_MetadataToken ()

public function get MetadataToken () : int

Not applicable.

Property Value

A value which, in combination with Module, uniquely identifies a metadata element.

Exception typeCondition


The current MemberInfo represents an array method, such as Address, on an array type whose element type is a dynamic type that has not been completed. To get a metadata token in this case, pass the MemberInfo object to the ModuleBuilder.GetMethodToken method; or use the ModuleBuilder.GetArrayMethodToken method to get the token directly, instead of using the ModuleBuilder.GetArrayMethod method to get a MethodInfo first.

The tokens obtained using this property can be passed to the unmanaged reflection API. For more information, please see The Unmanaged Reflection API.
