Delegate Constructor (Type, String)
Microsoft Silverlight will reach end of support after October 2021. Learn more.
Updated: June 2010
Initializes a delegate that invokes the specified static method from the specified class.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration <SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute> _ Protected Sub New ( _ target As Type, _ method As String _ )
[SecuritySafeCriticalAttribute] protected Delegate( Type target, string method )
target is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
method is nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
target is not a RuntimeType. See Runtime Types in Reflection.
target represents an open generic type.
Application code attempts to access this member late-bound, for example, by using the Type.InvokeMember method.
This constructor cannot be used in application code. To create a delegate by specifying the name of a static method, use an overload of the CreateDelegate method that specifies a method name but does not specify a target object. For example, the CreateDelegate method overload creates a static delegate for a method with a specified name.
This constructor creates delegates for static methods only. An instance method is a method that is associated with an instance of a class; a static method is a method that is associated with the class itself.
Supported in: 5, 4, 3

Clarified that this constructor is not used in application code.
