The following example uses the MethodBuilder class to create a method within a dynamic type.

Remarks

The MethodBuilder class is used to fully describe a method in Microsoft intermediate language (MSIL), including the name, attributes, signature, and method body. It is used in conjunction with the TypeBuilder class to create classes at runtime.

Global methods and methods as type members

You can use reflection emit to define global methods and to define methods as type members. The APIs that define methods return MethodBuilder objects.

Global methods

A global method is defined by using the ModuleBuilder.DefineGlobalMethod method, which returns a MethodBuilder object.

Global methods must be static. If a dynamic module contains global methods, the ModuleBuilder.CreateGlobalFunctions method must be called before persisting the dynamic module or the containing dynamic assembly because the common language runtime postpones fixing up the dynamic module until all global functions have been defined.

A global native method is defined by using the ModuleBuilder.DefinePInvokeMethod method. Platform invoke (PInvoke) methods must not be declared abstract or virtual. The runtime sets the MethodAttributes.PinvokeImpl attribute for a platform invoke method.

Methods as members of types

A method is defined as a type member by using the TypeBuilder.DefineMethod method, which returns a MethodBuilder object.

The DefineParameter method is used to set the name and parameter attributes of a parameter, or of the return value. The ParameterBuilder object returned by this method represents a parameter or the return value. The ParameterBuilder object can be used to set the marshaling, to set the constant value, and to apply custom attributes.

Attributes

Members of the MethodAttributes enumeration define the precise character of a dynamic method:

Known Issues

Properties

Retrieves the attributes for this method.

CallingConvention CallingConvention CallingConvention CallingConvention

Returns the calling convention of the method.

ContainsGenericParameters ContainsGenericParameters ContainsGenericParameters ContainsGenericParameters

Not supported for this type.

Gets a collection that contains this member's custom attributes.

(Inherited from MemberInfo)
DeclaringType DeclaringType DeclaringType DeclaringType

Returns the type that declares this method.

InitLocals InitLocals InitLocals InitLocals

Gets or sets a Boolean value that specifies whether the local variables in this method are zero initialized. The default value of this property is true.

IsAbstract IsAbstract IsAbstract IsAbstract

Gets a value indicating whether the method is abstract.

(Inherited from MethodBase)
IsAssembly IsAssembly IsAssembly IsAssembly

Gets a value indicating whether the potential visibility of this method or constructor is described by Assembly; that is, the method or constructor is visible at most to other types in the same assembly, and is not visible to derived types outside the assembly.

IsFamilyOrAssembly IsFamilyOrAssembly IsFamilyOrAssembly IsFamilyOrAssembly

Gets a value indicating whether the potential visibility of this method or constructor is described by FamORAssem; that is, the method or constructor can be called by derived classes wherever they are, and by classes in the same assembly.
