ModuleBuilder.DefineDocument(String, Guid, Guid, Guid) Method

Definition

Defines a document for source.

public:
 System::Diagnostics::SymbolStore::ISymbolDocumentWriter ^ DefineDocument(System::String ^ url, Guid language, Guid languageVendor, Guid documentType);
public System.Diagnostics.SymbolStore.ISymbolDocumentWriter DefineDocument (string url, Guid language, Guid languageVendor, Guid documentType);
member this.DefineDocument : string * Guid * Guid * Guid -> System.Diagnostics.SymbolStore.ISymbolDocumentWriter
Public Function DefineDocument (url As String, language As Guid, languageVendor As Guid, documentType As Guid) As ISymbolDocumentWriter

Parameters

url
String

The URL for the document.

language
Guid

The GUID that identifies the document language. This can be Empty.

languageVendor
Guid

The GUID that identifies the document language vendor. This can be Empty.

documentType
Guid

The GUID that identifies the document type. This can be Empty.

Returns

ISymbolDocumentWriter

The defined document.

Exceptions

url is null. This is a change from earlier versions of the .NET Framework.

This method is called on a dynamic module that is not a debug module.

Examples

The following code sample illustrates the use of DefineDocument to attach an external symbol document (in this case, a raw IL file) to a dynamic module.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
using namespace System::Reflection::Emit;
using namespace System::Resources;
using namespace System::Diagnostics::SymbolStore;
public ref class CodeGenerator
{
private:
   ModuleBuilder^ myModuleBuilder;
   AssemblyBuilder^ myAssemblyBuilder;

public:
   CodeGenerator()
   {
      
      // Get the current application domain for the current thread.
      AppDomain^ currentDomain = AppDomain::CurrentDomain;
      AssemblyName^ myAssemblyName = gcnew AssemblyName;
      myAssemblyName->Name = "TempAssembly";
      
      // Define a dynamic assembly in the current domain.
      myAssemblyBuilder = currentDomain->DefineDynamicAssembly( myAssemblyName, AssemblyBuilderAccess::RunAndSave );
      
      // Define a dynamic module in S"TempAssembly" assembly.
      myModuleBuilder = myAssemblyBuilder->DefineDynamicModule( "TempModule", "Resource.mod", true );
      
      // Define a document for source.on 'TempModule' module.
      ISymbolDocumentWriter^ myDocument = myModuleBuilder->DefineDocument( "RTAsm.il", SymDocumentType::Text, SymLanguageType::ILAssembly, SymLanguageVendor::Microsoft );
      Console::WriteLine( "The object representing the defined document is: {0}", myDocument );
   }

};

Remarks

Important

Earlier versions of the .NET Framework throw ArgumentException instead of ArgumentNullException when url is null.
