MemberInfo.MetadataToken Property

Gets a value that identifies a metadata element.

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

public virtual int MetadataToken { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Int32
A value which, in combination with Module, uniquely identifies a metadata element.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidOperationException

The current MemberInfo represents an array method, such as Address, on an array type whose element type is a dynamic type that has not been completed. To get a metadata token in this case, pass the MemberInfo object to the ModuleBuilder.GetMethodToken method; or use the ModuleBuilder.GetArrayMethodToken method to get the token directly, instead of using the ModuleBuilder.GetArrayMethod method to get a MethodInfo first.
