Remarks

If an attacker can control input to the staticInvoke method, a security risk exists. Therefore, this method runs under Code Access Security. Calls to this method on the server require permission. Make sure that the user has development privileges by setting the security key to SysDevelopment on the control that calls this method.

If an error occurs when you call the get_Now method, the Exception::ClrError exception is thrown.

Examples

The following example calls the get_Now method on the System.DateTime CLR class and prints the results in the Infolog.

static void Job7(Args _args) 
{ 
    CLRObject clrObj; 
    InteropPermission perm; 
    System.DateTime dateTime; 
 
    perm = new InteropPermission(InteropKind::ClrInterop); 
    if (perm == null) 
    { 
        return; 
    } 
    perm.assert(); 
 
    dateTime = CLRInterop::staticInvoke( 
                   "System.DateTime", 
                   "get_Now" ); 
    info(dateTime.ToString()); 
    CodeAccessPermission::revertAssert(); 
     
    pause; 
     
    // This is the same code using CLR syntax. 
    // dateTime = System.DateTime::get_Now(); 
    // info(dateTime.ToString()); 
}
