Examples

The following example creates a static method (Shared in Visual Basic) named Function1 that returns a string and has a parameter of type Int32. In the body of the method, the code example creates LocalBuilder objects representing two local variables, and sets symbol information for the local variables. The method does not do anything significant, but the method body demonstrates storing a parameter to a local variable, storing a literal string to a local variable, and loading a local variable.
