How To Get A RuntimeMethodHandle?

How To Get A RuntimeMethodHandle?

Post by James Trefr » Thu, 12 Sep 2002 16:45:58


I am trying to pass a MethodInfo object to my exception handler so I can get
the name of the method where the error occurred.  On the Full Framework, I
can use System.Reflection.MethodInfo.GetCurrentMethod(), but that is not
available in the CF.

Now I am trying to use System.Reflection.MethodInfo.GetMethodFromHandle, but
it requires a RuntimeMethodHandle.

*** So can anybody tell me how to get a RuntimeMethodHandle that represents
the current method? ***

Your help would be much appreciated.

1. RuntimeMethodHandle

Could someone explain what the RuntimeMethodHandle is supposed to return?
I was trying to programmatically discover the current method name like so:

private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)


System.RuntimeMethodHandle rmh = new RuntimeMethodHandle();

System.Reflection.MethodBase mb =


I was hoping that this would return 'button1_Click'

Is this the correct way to go about this?

Thanks in advance!
