MulticastDelegate Constructor (Object, String)

Initializes a new instance of the MulticastDelegate class.

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

protected MulticastDelegate(
	Object target,
	string method


Type: System.Object
The object on which method is defined.
Type: System.String
The name of the method for which a delegate is created.


Cannot create an instance of an abstract class, or this member was invoked with a late-binding mechanism.

This constructor cannot be used in application code. To create a delegate by specifying the name of an instance method, use an overload of the Delegate.CreateDelegate method that specifies a method name and a target object. For example, the Delegate.CreateDelegate(Type, Object, String) method overload creates a delegate for an instance method with a specified name.
