Name

MethodInfo

Synopsis

This class is an implementation of MethodBase for methods (ConstructorInfo is the other implementation, for constructors). It adds two properties: ReturnType and ReturnTypeCustomAttributes, which allow access to the System.Type object of the value returned, and to the custom attributes set on that value. If the method is overridden from a base class, then GetBaseDefinition() returns the MethodInfo for the overridden method.

public abstract class MethodInfo : MethodBase {
// Protected Constructors
   protected method MethodInfo();  
// Public Instance Properties
   public override field MemberTypes MemberType{get; }     // overrides MemberInfo
   public abstract field Type ReturnType{get; } 
   public abstract field ICustomAttributeProvider ReturnTypeCustomAttributes{get; } 
// Public Instance Methods
   public abstract method MethodInfo GetBaseDefinition();  
}
