MethodBody.GetILAsByteArray Method

Returns the MSIL for the method body, as an array of bytes.

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

public virtual byte[] GetILAsByteArray()

Return Value

Type: System.Byte[]
An array of type Byte that contains the MSIL for the method body.

You can use the token-resolution methods of the module class, such as ResolveType, ResolveMethod, and ResolveMember, to resolve the tokens in the method body to Type objects, MethodInfo objects, and FieldInfo objects that provide detailed information about the types, methods, and fields accessed by the MSIL in the method body.

NoteNote

Parsing method bodies requires a thorough understanding of metadata and MSIL instruction formats. Information can be found in the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) documentation, especially "Partition II: Metadata Definition and Semantics" and "Partition III: CIL Instruction Set". The documentation is available online; see ECMA C# and Common Language Infrastructure Standards on MSDN and Standard ECMA-335 - Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) on the Ecma International Web site.
