Property Value

A MethodInfo object describing the method.

This property contains one of the following:

  • Information about the method that the failed assembly was executing when the security check that triggered the exception occurred.

  • Information about the method that placed either a PermitOnly or Deny security action on the call stack, in the case of a failure due to a PermitOnly or Deny.

  • a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic), in the case of a failure that is impossible to attribute to a specific method.

The MethodInfo object provides the method name, class name, and assembly name information that uniquely identifies the method.

The following code example shows the use of the Method property to display information about the method that caused the exception. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the SecurityException class.
