ILGenerator.ILOffset Property


Gets the current offset, in bytes, in the Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL) stream that is being emitted by the ILGenerator.

 property int ILOffset { int get(); };
public int ILOffset { get; }
member this.ILOffset : int
Public ReadOnly Property ILOffset As Integer

Property Value

The offset in the MSIL stream at which the next instruction will be emitted.


This method is transparent, and can be called from partially trusted code.

If the ILOffset property is accessed before any MSIL instructions have been emitted, it returns 0 (zero).

When MSIL is generated for dynamic languages, this property can be used to map offsets in the MSIL stream to source code line numbers. The resulting information can be used to provide stack traces when exceptions are thrown.
