Description Robert Persson 2014-05-23 17:57:40 UTC
When calling Marshal.GetFunctionPointerForDelegate for a delegate type declared in a referenced assembly, which is using a custom marshaler, the application crashes with the below info. The code was tested and working under microsoft .NET.

* Assertion at marshal.c:5893, condition `mtype != NULL' not met


  at <unknown> <0xffffffff>
  at (wrapper managed-to-native) System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.GetFunctionPointerForDelegateInternal (System.Delegate) <IL 0x00021, 0xffffffff>
  at System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.GetFunctionPointerForDelegate (System.Delegate) [0x00011] in /build/buildd/mono-3-opt-3.2.3/mcs/class/corlib/System.Runtime.InteropServices/Marshal.cs:1277

//Code in main executable:
namespace monoBugTest
	class MainClass
		public static void Main (string[] args)
			CallbackDelegate cb = new CallbackDelegate (TestFunction);
			IntPtr i=Marshal.GetFunctionPointerForDelegate (cb); // <= crashes here

		public static void TestFunction(object o) {	}

//Code in referenced assembly:
namespace externalAsm
	public delegate void CallbackDelegate([MarshalAs(UnmanagedType.CustomMarshaler, MarshalTypeRef = typeof(TestMarshaler))] object sender);

	public class TestMarshaler : ICustomMarshaler
		static TestMarshaler static_instance;

		public IntPtr MarshalManagedToNative(object managedObj)	{return IntPtr.Zero;}

		public object MarshalNativeToManaged(IntPtr pNativeData) {return null;}

		public void CleanUpNativeData(IntPtr pNativeData) {	}

		public void CleanUpManagedData(object managedObj) {	}

		public int GetNativeDataSize() {return -1;}

		public static ICustomMarshaler GetInstance(string cookie)
			if (static_instance == null)
				static_instance = new TestMarshaler();

			return static_instance;

Fixed in mono master 4385e25d7a9694bc140ec2ab88d4953942fd8057.
