DynamicMethod Constructor (String, Type, Type[], Module, Boolean)

Note: This constructor is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Creates a dynamic method that is global to a module, specifying the method name, return type, parameter types, module, and whether just-in-time (JIT) visibility checks should be skipped for members of all types in the module.

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

public DynamicMethod (
	string name,
	Type returnType,
	Type[] parameterTypes,
	Module m,
	bool skipVisibility
)
public DynamicMethod (
	String name, 
	Type returnType, 
	Type[] parameterTypes, 
	Module m, 
	boolean skipVisibility
)
public function DynamicMethod (
	name : String, 
	returnType : Type, 
	parameterTypes : Type[], 
	m : Module, 
	skipVisibility : boolean
)

Parameters

name

The name of the dynamic method. Can be a zero-length string, but not a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

returnType

A Type object that specifies the return type of the dynamic method, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the method has no return type.

parameterTypes

An array of Type objects specifying the types of the parameters of the dynamic method, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the method has no parameters.

m

A Module representing the module with which the dynamic method is to be logically associated.

skipVisibility

true to skip JIT visibility checks on members of all the types in all modules; otherwise, false.

Exception typeCondition

ArgumentException

An element of parameterTypes is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or Void.

ArgumentNullException

name is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

-or-

m is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

NotSupportedException

returnType is a type for which Type.IsByRef returns true.

This constructor specifies method attributes MethodAttributes.Public and MethodAttributes.Static, and calling convention CallingConventions.Standard.

The dynamic method created with this constructor has access to public and internal (Friend in Visual Basic) members of all the types in contained module m. Skipping the JIT compiler's visibility checks allows the dynamic method to access private and protected members of all the types in the module, as well. This is useful when writing code to serialize objects, for example.
