Fields and Data Constants

  • Serge Lidin


Fields are one of two kinds of typed and named data locations, the second kind being method local variables, which are discussed in  Chapter 10. Fields correspond to the data members and global variables of the C++ world. Apart from their own characteristics, fields can have additional information associated with them that defines the way the fields are laid out by the loader, how they are allocated, how they are marshaled to unmanaged code, and whether they have default values. This chapter examines all aspects of member and global fields, and the metadata used to describe these aspects.
