I am interested in using a method's name (ie MyFunc) to find its address. I know you can use CallByName to actually call the function, but I just want to get its address. I have a delegate and I want to assign it the AddressOf "MyFunc".

u can use the GetAssemblyByName method

Imports System
Imports System.Reflection
Imports System.Text.RegularExpressions
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

Public Class AssemblyName_GetAssemblyName
   
   Public Shared Sub Main()
     

      ' Get the type of 'System.Object'.
      Dim myType As Type = GetType(System.Object)
     
      ' Get the path of 'System.dll'.
      Dim system As String = Regex.Replace(myType.Assembly.CodeBase, "mscorlib.dll", "System.dll")
      system = Regex.Replace(system, "file:///", "")
     
      ' Get the assembly information and display to the console.
      Dim myAssemblyName As AssemblyName = AssemblyName.GetAssemblyName(system)
      Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Displaying the assembly information of 'System.dll'" + ControlChars.Cr)
      Console.WriteLine(myAssemblyName.ToString())
   End Sub 'Main
End Class 'AssemblyName_GetAssemblyName

What's wrong with AddressOf?

Unless I am using it wrong, AddressOf requires the function name be typed at runtime, you cannot use a string as a parameter. I would like to load the string name from a database and get the address from it at a runtime.
