The following table lists the instruction's hexadecimal and Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) assembly format, along with a brief reference summary:
||Casts an object to a new object of type
The stack transitional behavior, in sequential order, is:
An object reference is pushed onto the stack.
The object reference is popped from the stack; the referenced object is cast as the specified
If successful, a new object reference is pushed onto the stack.
castclass instruction attempts to cast the object reference (type
O) atop the stack to a specified class. The new class is specified by a metadata token indicating the desired class. If the class of the object on the top of the stack does not implement the new class (assuming the new class is an interface) and is not a derived class of the new class then an InvalidCastException is thrown. If the object reference is a null reference,
castclass succeeds and returns the new object as a null reference.
InvalidCastException is thrown if obj cannot be cast to class.
TypeLoadException is thrown if class cannot be found. This is typically detected when a Microsoft Intermediate Language (MSIL) instruction is converted to native code rather than at runtime.
