MethodBase.GetParameters Method


When overridden in a derived class, gets the parameters of the specified method or constructor.

 abstract cli::array <System::Reflection::ParameterInfo ^> ^ GetParameters();
public abstract System.Reflection.ParameterInfo[] GetParameters ();
abstract member GetParameters : unit -> System.Reflection.ParameterInfo[]
Public MustOverride Function GetParameters () As ParameterInfo()


An array of type ParameterInfo containing information that matches the signature of the method (or constructor) reflected by this MethodBase instance.



The following example uses the GetParameters method to retrieve the parameters of the Invoke method of a delegate.

The example defines a delegate named MyDelegate and an event named ev of type MyDelegate. The code in the Main method discovers the event signature by getting the delegate type of the event, getting the Invoke method of the delegate type, and then retrieving and displaying the parameters.

// The following example uses instances of classes in
// the System::Reflection namespace to discover an event argument type.
using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;

public delegate void MyDelegate( int i );
public ref class MainClass
   event MyDelegate^ ev;

int main()
   Type^ delegateType = MainClass::typeid->GetEvent( "ev" )->EventHandlerType;
   MethodInfo^ invoke = delegateType->GetMethod( "Invoke" );
   array<ParameterInfo^>^pars = invoke->GetParameters();
   System::Collections::IEnumerator^ myEnum = pars->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
      ParameterInfo^ p = safe_cast<ParameterInfo^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::WriteLine( p->ParameterType );
// The example displays the following output:
//       System.Int32
// The following example uses instances of classes in 
// the System.Reflection namespace to discover an event argument type.
using System;
using System.Reflection;

public delegate void MyDelegate(int i);
public class MainClass 
    public event MyDelegate ev;

    public static void Main() 
        Type delegateType = typeof(MainClass).GetEvent("ev").EventHandlerType;
        MethodInfo invoke = delegateType.GetMethod("Invoke");
        ParameterInfo[] pars = invoke.GetParameters();
        foreach (ParameterInfo p in pars) 
// The example displays the following output:
//       System.Int32
Imports System.Reflection

Public Delegate Sub MyDelegate(ByVal i As Integer)

Public Class MainClass
    Public Event ev As MyDelegate

    Public Shared Sub Main()
        Dim delegateType As Type = GetType(MainClass).GetEvent("ev").EventHandlerType
        Dim invoke As MethodInfo = delegateType.GetMethod("Invoke")
        Dim pars As ParameterInfo() = invoke.GetParameters()
        For Each p As ParameterInfo In pars
    End Sub

' The example displays the following output:

when invoked late-bound through mechanisms such as InvokeMember(String, BindingFlags, Binder, Object, Object[], ParameterModifier[], CultureInfo, String[]). Associated enumeration: MemberAccess.
