MethodInfo Class

Discovers the attributes of a method and provides access to method metadata.

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

[SerializableAttribute] 
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
[ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.None)] 
public abstract class MethodInfo : MethodBase, _MethodInfo
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
/** @attribute ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.None) */ 
public abstract class MethodInfo extends MethodBase implements _MethodInfo
SerializableAttribute 
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
ClassInterfaceAttribute(ClassInterfaceType.None) 
public abstract class MethodInfo extends MethodBase implements _MethodInfo
Not applicable.

Instances of MethodInfo are obtained by calling the GetMethods or GetMethod method of a Type object or of an object that derives from Type, or by calling the MakeGenericMethod method of a MethodInfo that represents a generic method definition.

For a list of the invariant conditions for terms specific to generic methods, see the IsGenericMethod property. For a list of the invariant conditions for other terms used in generic reflection, see the IsGenericType property.

Notes to Inheritors: When you inherit from MethodInfo, you must override MethodInfo.GetBaseDefinition, MethodInfo.ReturnType, MethodInfo.ReturnTypeCustomAttributes, MethodBase.GetParameters, MethodBase.GetMethodImplementationFlags, MethodBase.MethodHandle, MethodBase.Attributes, MethodBase.Invoke, MemberInfo.Name, MemberInfo.MemberType, MemberInfo.DeclaringType, MemberInfo.ReflectedType, MemberInfo.GetCustomAttributes, MemberInfo.GetCustomAttributes, and MemberInfo.IsDefined.

This type is thread safe.
