A token that can be used as the operand of an MSIL instruction that accesses methods, such as Call or Ldtoken, in the scope of the current DynamicILInfo object.

You must obtain a token for any method that will be accessed by the dynamic method associated with the current DynamicILInfo object. Use the Type.GetMethod method to get a MethodInfo for the method you want to access, and then use the MethodHandle property to get the RuntimeMethodHandle.


For a method that belongs to a generic type, use the GetTokenFor(RuntimeMethodHandle, RuntimeTypeHandle) method overload and specify a RuntimeTypeHandle for the generic type.
