Marshal.PrelinkAll Method

Performs a pre-link check for all methods on a class.

[Visual Basic]
Public Shared Sub PrelinkAll( _
   ByVal c As Type _
public static void PrelinkAll(
 Type c
public: static void PrelinkAll(
 Type* c
public static function PrelinkAll(
   c : Type


A Type that identifies the class whose methods are to be checked.


Exception Type Condition
ArgumentNullException c is not a valid type.


The PrelinkAll method invokes Marshal.Prelink on every method for a given type. Prelink executes one-time method setup tasks without calling each method. You can only use PrelinkAll for platform invoke calls.

Note   This method uses SecurityAction.LinkDemand to prevent it from being called from untrusted code; only the immediate caller is required to have SecurityPermissionAttribute.UnmanagedCode permission. If your code can be called from partially trusted code, do not pass user input to Marshal class methods without validation. For important limitations on using the LinkDemand member, see Demand vs. LinkDemand.
