MethodInfo.Invoke(Object, Object[]) Method


Invokes the method or constructor represented by the current instance, using the specified parameters.

 virtual System::Object ^ Invoke(System::Object ^ obj, cli::array <System::Object ^> ^ parameters);
public object Invoke (object obj, object[] parameters);
override this.Invoke : obj * obj[] -> obj
Public Function Invoke (obj As Object, parameters As Object()) As Object



The object on which to invoke the method or constructor. If a method is static, this argument is ignored. If a constructor is static, this argument must be null or an instance of the class that defines the constructor.


An argument list for the invoked method or constructor. This is an array of objects with the same number, order, and type as the parameters of the method or constructor to be invoked. If there are no parameters, parameters should be null. If the method or constructor represented by this instance takes a ref parameter (ByRef in Visual Basic), no special attribute is required for that parameter in order to invoke the method or constructor using this function. Any object in this array that is not explicitly initialized with a value will contain the default value for that object type. For reference-type elements, this value is null. For value-type elements, this value is 0, 0.0, or false, depending on the specific element type.


An object containing the return value of the invoked method, or null in the case of a constructor.
