Notable APIs

  • MonoMod.RuntimeDetour.Hook - An easy-to-use method hook
  • MonoMod.RuntimeDetour.ILHook - Modifies the IL of a method
  • MonoMod.RuntiemDetour.DetourContext - Persistent, shared detour configuration

Basic Usage

// Create a Hook.
using (var d = new Hook(methodInfoFrom, methodInfoTo))
    // When the detour goes out-of-scope (and thus has Dispose() called), the detour is undone.
    // If the object is collected by the garbage collector, the detour is also undone.

Detour Types

There are 2 managed detour types that are available:

  1. Hook - This is effectively Detour but better. It sits as part of the same detour chain as Detour objects. The target of the hook may be a delegate, and so may be an instance method associated with some object. Hook targets may also take as their first parameter a delegate with a signature matching the detour source. This delegate, when called, will invoke the next detour in the chain, or the original if this is the last detour in the chain. Note: this delegate should usually only be called while the hook method is on the stack. See The Detour Chain for more information.
  2. ILHook - This is a different kind of detour. If you're familiar with Harmony, this is effectively a transpiler. When you construct an ILHook, you provide a delegate which gets provided an ILContext which can be used to modify the IL of the method. If multiple ILHooks are present for the same method, the order the manipulators are invoked is the same as the order detours in a detour chain would be.

Each detour (Hook or ILHook) may have an associated DetourConfig. Each detour config must have an ID--this will typically be the name of the mod which applies the hook. They also have a list of IDs which detours associated with this config will run before, and a similar list that they will run after. If some config A wants to run before B, and B wants to run before A, the resulting order is unspecified. The MonoMod debug log will make a note of this.

Detour configs may also have a priority. Detours with any priority will execute before any without, unless one of the before or after fields caused it to be placed differently. The before and after fields take precedence over the priority field.

Any detours with no DetourConfig get run in an arbitrary order after all those with a DetourConfig.

The Detour Chain

All detours whose source method is the same are part of one detour chain. When the source method is called, the first detour in the chain gets called. That detour then has complete control over how that function behaves. It may, at any point, invoke the delegate (gotten from the delegate parameter to a hook method) to invoke the next detour in the chain. It may pass any parameters, and do anything with the return value.

While within the original method invocation (i.e. in the detour chain, with every prior detour on the stack), invoking the continuation delegate is safe, and will always invoke the next detour in the chain. Modifying the detour chain for a method is thread safe, and modifications will wait until all existing invocations of the detour chain exit, and all new invocations of the chain will wait until the chain modification is complete before execution. Notably, though, this means that invoking continuation delegates while the detour chain is not on the stack is not thread-safe, nor is it guaranteed to actually invoke the delegate chain as it exists at the moment of invocation. Always invoke the original method, and never delay invocation of the original delegate.
