public abstract class Binder

The Binder type exposes the following members.

Protected methodBinderInitializes a new instance of the Binder class.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Implementations of the Binder class are used by methods such as Type..::..InvokeMember, which selects from a set of possible members to execute, based on a set of parameter types and argument values; Type..::..GetMethod, which selects a method based on parameter types; and so on.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
