Examples

[Visual Basic, C#]

The code example below demonstrates how to create a transient dynamic module using DefineDynamicModule.

AppDomain^ myAppDomain = Thread::GetDomain();
AssemblyName^ myAsmName = gcnew AssemblyName;
myAsmName->Name = "MyAssembly";
AssemblyBuilder^ myAsmBuilder = myAppDomain->DefineDynamicAssembly(
   myAsmName, AssemblyBuilderAccess::Run );

// Create a transient dynamic module. Since no DLL name is specified with
// this constructor, it cannot be saved.
ModuleBuilder^ myModuleBuilder = myAsmBuilder->DefineDynamicModule( "MyModule1" );
AppDomain myAppDomain = Thread.GetDomain(); 
AssemblyName myAsmName = new AssemblyName();
myAsmName.Name = "MyAssembly";
AssemblyBuilder myAsmBuilder = myAppDomain.DefineDynamicAssembly(
			myAsmName,
			AssemblyBuilderAccess.Run);

// Create a transient dynamic module. Since no DLL name is specified with
// this constructor, it can not be saved. 
ModuleBuilder myModuleBuilder = myAsmBuilder.DefineDynamicModule("MyModule1");
Dim myAppDomain As AppDomain = Thread.GetDomain()
Dim myAsmName As New AssemblyName()
myAsmName.Name = "MyAssembly"
Dim myAsmBuilder As AssemblyBuilder = myAppDomain.DefineDynamicAssembly(myAsmName, _
	AssemblyBuilderAccess.Run)

' Create a transient dynamic module. Since no DLL name is specified with
' this constructor, it can not be saved. 
Dim myModuleBuilder As ModuleBuilder = myAsmBuilder.DefineDynamicModule("MyModule1")

Remarks

It is an error to define multiple dynamic modules with the same name in an assembly.

The defined dynamic module is transient. The dynamic module is not saved, even if the parent dynamic assembly was created with RunAndSave.

Note

To suppress optimizations when debugging dynamic modules, apply the DebuggableAttribute attribute to the dynamic assembly before calling DefineDynamicModule. Create an instance of DebuggableAttribute with the DisableOptimizations flag and apply it using the SetCustomAttribute method. The attribute must be applied to the dynamic assembly. It has no effect if applied to the module.

Note

Starting with the .NET Framework 2.0 Service Pack 1, this member no longer requires ReflectionPermission with the ReflectionPermissionFlag.ReflectionEmit flag. (See Security Issues in Reflection Emit.) To use this functionality, your application should target the .NET Framework 3.5 or later.

Examples

[Visual Basic, C#]

The code example below demonstrates how to create a persistent dynamic module using DefineDynamicModule.

AppDomain^ myAppDomain = Thread::GetDomain();
AssemblyName^ myAsmName = gcnew AssemblyName;
myAsmName->Name = "MyAssembly";
AssemblyBuilder^ myAsmBuilder = myAppDomain->DefineDynamicAssembly(
   myAsmName, AssemblyBuilderAccess::Run );

// Create a dynamic module that can be saved as the specified DLL name.
ModuleBuilder^ myModuleBuilder = myAsmBuilder->DefineDynamicModule(
   "MyModule3", "MyModule3.dll" );
AppDomain myAppDomain = Thread.GetDomain(); 
AssemblyName myAsmName = new AssemblyName();
myAsmName.Name = "MyAssembly";
AssemblyBuilder myAsmBuilder = myAppDomain.DefineDynamicAssembly(
			myAsmName,
			AssemblyBuilderAccess.Run);
// Create a dynamic module that can be saved as the specified DLL name.
ModuleBuilder myModuleBuilder = myAsmBuilder.DefineDynamicModule("MyModule3",
					    "MyModule3.dll");
Dim myAppDomain As AppDomain = Thread.GetDomain()
Dim myAsmName As New AssemblyName()
myAsmName.Name = "MyAssembly"
Dim myAsmBuilder As AssemblyBuilder = myAppDomain.DefineDynamicAssembly(myAsmName, _
	AssemblyBuilderAccess.Run)
' Create a dynamic module that can be saved as the specified DLL name.
Dim myModuleBuilder As ModuleBuilder = myAsmBuilder.DefineDynamicModule("MyModule3", _
			"MyModule3.dll")

Remarks

To define a persistable dynamic module, this assembly needs to be created with the Save or the RunAndSave attribute.

If you want the module to contain the assembly manifest, name should be the same as the name of the assembly (that is, the AssemblyName.Name property of the AssemblyName used to create the dynamic assembly) and fileName should be the same as the filename you specify when you save the assembly.

In an assembly with only one module, that module should contain the assembly manifest.

Note

Create an instance of DebuggableAttribute with the DisableOptimizations flag and apply it using the SetCustomAttribute method. The attribute must be applied to the dynamic assembly.
