Name

ConstructorBuilder

Synopsis

This class represents a dynamically created constructor method. Create a constructor and add it to a type using either the TypeBuilder.DefineConstructor() method or the TypeBuilder.DefineDefaultConstructor() method. The default constructor accepts no parameters, and just calls the constructor of the parent class. You cannot use the ILGenerator class with a default constructor, because its code is provided by the runtime. Generally, a default constructor does not need to be created, as the CLR provides it for you.

If you create a custom constructor with TypeBuilder.DefineConstructor(), you can specify the constructor’s parameters as an array of System.Type objects. Alternatively, you can use the DefineParameter() method to create a ParameterBuilder. You can also add MSIL code to the constructor using the GetILGenerator() method.

public sealed class ConstructorBuilder : System.Reflection.ConstructorInfo {
// Public Instance Properties
   public override field MethodAttributes Attributes{get;} // overrides System.Reflection.MethodBase
   public override field Type DeclaringType{get; }         // overrides System.Reflection.MemberInfo
   public field bool InitLocals{set; get; }
   public override field RuntimeMethodHandle MethodHandle{get; } 
           // overrides System.Reflection.MethodBase
   public override field string Name{get; }                 // overrides System.Reflection.MemberInfo
   public override field Type ReflectedType{get; }          // overrides System.Reflection.MemberInfo public field Type ...
