GetCurrentMethod Method

MethodBase.GetCurrentMethod Method

Returns a MethodBase object representing the currently executing method.

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

public static MethodBase GetCurrentMethod()

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.MethodBase
A MethodBase object representing the currently executing method.

ExceptionCondition
TargetException

This member was invoked with a late-binding mechanism.

If the currently executing method is defined on a generic type, the MethodInfo that is returned by GetCurrentMethod is obtained from the generic type definition (that is, MethodInfo.ContainsGenericParameters returns true). Therefore, it does not reflect the type arguments that were used when the method was called. For example, if a method M() is defined on a generic type C<T> (C(Of T) in Visual Basic), and GetCurrentMethod is called from C<string>.M(), then GetCurrentMethod returns C<T>.M() (C(Of T).M() in Visual Basic).

If the currently executing method is a generic method, GetCurrentMethod returns the generic method definition. If the generic method is defined on a generic type, the MethodInfo is obtained from the generic type definition.
