Examples

The following code sample demonstrates how to define a dynamic property and obtain a PropertyBuilder for specification. Note that a PropertyBuilder must also have a corresponding MethodBuilder, which will house the IL logic for the property.

If a particular parameter has no optional custom modifiers, specify null instead of an array of types. If none of the parameters have optional custom modifiers, specify null instead of an array of arrays.

Returns

Exceptions

name is null

-or-

Any of the elements of the parameterTypes array is null

Remarks

This overload is provided for designers of managed compilers.

Note

For more information on custom modifiers, see the ECMA Partition II Metadata documentation. The documentation is available online; see ECMA C# and Common Language Infrastructure Standards on MSDN and Standard ECMA-335 - Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) on the Ecma International Web site.

Parameters

name
String String String String

The name of the property. name cannot contain embedded nulls.

attributes
PropertyAttributes PropertyAttributes PropertyAttributes PropertyAttributes

The attributes of the property.

callingConvention
CallingConventions CallingConventions CallingConventions CallingConventions

The calling convention of the property accessors.

returnType
Type Type Type Type

The return type of the property.

returnTypeRequiredCustomModifiers
Type[]

An array of types representing the required custom modifiers, such as IsConst, for the return type of the property. If the return type has no required custom modifiers, specify null.

returnTypeOptionalCustomModifiers
Type[]

An array of types representing the optional custom modifiers, such as IsConst, for the return type of the property. If the return type has no optional custom modifiers, specify null.

parameterTypes
Type[]

The types of the parameters of the property.

parameterTypeRequiredCustomModifiers
Type[][]

An array of arrays of types. Each array of types represents the required custom modifiers for the corresponding parameter, such as IsConst. If a particular parameter has no required custom modifiers, specify null instead of an array of types. If none of the parameters have required custom modifiers, specify null instead of an array of arrays.

parameterTypeOptionalCustomModifiers
Type[][]

An array of arrays of types. Each array of types represents the optional custom modifiers for the corresponding parameter, such as IsConst. If a particular parameter has no optional custom modifiers, specify null instead of an array of types. If none of the parameters have optional custom modifiers, specify null instead of an array of arrays.

Returns

Exceptions

name is null.

-or-

Any of the elements of the parameterTypes array is null.
