TypeDelegator.GetMethodImpl Method

Searches for the specified method whose parameters match the specified argument types and modifiers, using the specified binding constraints and the specified calling convention.

[Visual Basic]
Overrides Protected Function GetMethodImpl( _
   ByVal name As String, _
   ByVal bindingAttr As BindingFlags, _
   ByVal binder As Binder, _
   ByVal callConvention As CallingConventions, _
   ByVal types() As Type, _
   ByVal modifiers() As ParameterModifier _
) As MethodInfo
protected override MethodInfo GetMethodImpl(
 string name,
 BindingFlags bindingAttr,
 Binder binder,
 CallingConventions callConvention,
 Type[] types,
 ParameterModifier[] modifiers
protected: MethodInfo* GetMethodImpl(
 String* name,
 BindingFlags bindingAttr,
 Binder* binder,
 CallingConventions callConvention,
 Type* types[],
 ParameterModifier modifiers[]
protected override function GetMethodImpl(
   name : String,
 bindingAttr : BindingFlags,
 binder : Binder,
 callConvention : CallingConventions,
 types : Type[],
 modifiers : ParameterModifier[]
) : MethodInfo;


The method name.
A bitmask that affects the way in which the search is conducted. The value is a combination of zero or more bit flags from BindingFlags.
An object that enables the binding, coercion of argument types, invocation of members, and retrieval of MemberInfo objects using reflection. If binder is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), the default binder is used.
The calling conventions.
An array of type Type containing a list of the parameter number, order, and types. Types cannot be a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic); use an appropriate GetMethod method or an empty array to search for a method without parameters.
An array of type ParameterModifier having the same length as the types array, whose elements represent the attributes associated with the parameters of the method to get.

Return Value

A MethodInfoInfo object for the implementation method that matches the specified criteria, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if a match cannot be found.


The callConvention parameter indicates the calling convention for the entry point. If no CallingConventions is specified, a default CallingConventions value of Standard is used.
