_Type.GetConstructor Method (BindingFlags, Binder, Type[], ParameterModifier[])

Provides COM objects with version-independent access to the Type.GetConstructor method.

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

ConstructorInfo GetConstructor(
	BindingFlags bindingAttr,
	Binder binder,
	Type[] types,
	ParameterModifier[] modifiers
)

Parameters

bindingAttr
Type: System.Reflection.BindingFlags

A bitmask comprised of one or more BindingFlags that specify how the search is conducted.

-or-

Zero, to return null.

binder
Type: System.Reflection.Binder

A Binder object that defines a set of properties and enables binding, which can involve selection of an overloaded method, coercion of argument types, and invocation of a member through reflection.

-or-

null, to use the DefaultBinder.

types
Type: System.Type[]

An array of Type objects representing the number, order, and type of the parameters for the constructor to get.

-or-

An empty array of the type Type (that is, Type[] types = new Type[0]) to get a constructor that takes no parameters.

-or-

EmptyTypes.

modifiers
Type: System.Reflection.ParameterModifier[]

An array of ParameterModifier objects representing the attributes associated with the corresponding element in the parameter type array. The default binder does not process this parameter.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.ConstructorInfo
A ConstructorInfo object representing the constructor that matches the specified requirements, if found; otherwise, null.

This method is for access to managed classes from unmanaged code, and should not be called from managed code.

The Type.GetConstructor method searches for a constructor whose parameters match the specified argument types and modifiers, using the specified binding constraints.
