ModuleHandle.ResolveTypeHandle ModuleHandle.ResolveTypeHandle ModuleHandle.ResolveTypeHandle ModuleHandle.ResolveTypeHandle Method

Definition

Returns a runtime type handle for a type identified by a metadata token.

Overloads

ResolveTypeHandle(Int32) ResolveTypeHandle(Int32) ResolveTypeHandle(Int32) ResolveTypeHandle(Int32)

Returns a runtime type handle for the type identified by the specified metadata token.

ResolveTypeHandle(Int32, RuntimeTypeHandle[], RuntimeTypeHandle[]) ResolveTypeHandle(Int32, RuntimeTypeHandle[], RuntimeTypeHandle[]) ResolveTypeHandle(Int32, RuntimeTypeHandle[], RuntimeTypeHandle[]) ResolveTypeHandle(Int32, RuntimeTypeHandle[], RuntimeTypeHandle[])

Returns a runtime type handle for the type identified by the specified metadata token, specifying the generic type arguments of the type and method where the token is in scope.

ResolveTypeHandle(Int32) ResolveTypeHandle(Int32) ResolveTypeHandle(Int32) ResolveTypeHandle(Int32)

Returns a runtime type handle for the type identified by the specified metadata token.

public:
 RuntimeTypeHandle ResolveTypeHandle(int typeToken);
public RuntimeTypeHandle ResolveTypeHandle (int typeToken);
member this.ResolveTypeHandle : int -> RuntimeTypeHandle
Public Function ResolveTypeHandle (typeToken As Integer) As RuntimeTypeHandle

Parameters

typeToken
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

A metadata token that identifies a type in the module.

Returns

Exceptions

typeToken is not a valid metadata token for a type in the current module.

-or-

metadataToken is not a token for a type in the scope of the current module.

-or-

metadataToken is a TypeSpec whose signature contains element type var or mvar.

Remarks

To resolve a metadata token for a TypeSpec whose signature contains element type var or mvar, use the ResolveTypeHandle(Int32, RuntimeTypeHandle[], RuntimeTypeHandle[]) method overload, which allows you to supply the necessary context.

Note

Information about metadata tokens can be found in the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) documentation, especially "Partition II: Metadata Definition and Semantics". The documentation is available online; see ECMA C# and Common Language Infrastructure Standards on MSDN and Standard ECMA-335 - Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) on the Ecma International Web site.

Returns a runtime type handle for the type identified by the specified metadata token, specifying the generic type arguments of the type and method where the token is in scope.

Public Function ResolveTypeHandle (typeToken As Integer, typeInstantiationContext As RuntimeTypeHandle(), methodInstantiationContext As RuntimeTypeHandle()) As RuntimeTypeHandle

Parameters

typeToken
Int32 Int32 Int32 Int32

A metadata token that identifies a type in the module.

typeInstantiationContext
RuntimeTypeHandle[]

An array of RuntimeTypeHandle structures representing the generic type arguments of the type where the token is in scope, or null if that type is not generic.

methodInstantiationContext
RuntimeTypeHandle[]

An array of RuntimeTypeHandle structures objects representing the generic type arguments of the method where the token is in scope, or null if that method is not generic.

Returns

Exceptions

typeToken is not a valid metadata token for a type in the current module.

-or-

metadataToken is not a token for a type in the scope of the current module.

-or-

metadataToken is a TypeSpec whose signature contains element type var or mvar.
