TypedReference Structure

Describes objects that contain both a managed pointer to a location and a runtime representation of the type that may be stored at that location.

This API is not CLS-compliant. 

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

type TypedReference =  struct end

The TypedReference type exposes the following members.

Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkEqualsChecks if this object is equal to the specified object. (Overrides ValueType.Equals(Object).)

In XNA Framework, this member is overridden by Equals(Object).
Protected methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkGetHashCodeReturns the hash code of this object. (Overrides ValueType.GetHashCode().)

In XNA Framework, this member is overridden by GetHashCode().
Public methodStatic memberGetTargetTypeReturns the type of the target of the specified TypedReference.
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberMakeTypedReferenceMakes a TypedReference for a field identified by a specified object and list of field descriptions.
Protected methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberSetTypedReferenceConverts the specified value to a TypedReference. This method is not supported.
Public methodStatic memberTargetTypeTokenReturns the internal metadata type handle for the specified TypedReference.
Public methodStatic memberToObjectConverts the specified TypedReference to an Object.
Public methodSupported by the XNA FrameworkToStringReturns the fully qualified type name of this instance. (Inherited from ValueType.)

In XNA Framework 3.0, this member is inherited from Object.ToString().

A typed reference is a type/value combination used for varargs and other support. TypedReference is a built-in value type that can be used for parameters and local variables.

Arrays of TypedReference objects cannot be created. For example, the following call is invalid:
