NotSupportedException

This local is defined in a dynamic method, rather than in a method of a dynamic type.

The SetLocalSymInfo method is supported for methods defined in dynamic types. It is not supported for dynamic methods defined using the DynamicMethod class.

The following code sample illustrates the use of the SetLocalSymInfo method. This code is part of a larger example for the LocalBuilder class.

// Create local variables named myString and myInt.
LocalBuilder myLB1 = myMethodIL.DeclareLocal(typeof(string));
myLB1.SetLocalSymInfo("myString");
Console.WriteLine("local 'myString' type is: {0}", myLB1.LocalType);

LocalBuilder myLB2 = myMethodIL.DeclareLocal(typeof(int));
myLB2.SetLocalSymInfo("myInt", 1, 2);
Console.WriteLine("local 'myInt' type is: {0}", myLB2.LocalType);
