Type.GetProperty Method (String, Type[])

Searches for the specified public property whose parameters match the specified argument types.

Namespace: System
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public PropertyInfo GetProperty (
	string name,
	Type[] types
)
public final PropertyInfo GetProperty (
	String name, 
	Type[] types
)
public final function GetProperty (
	name : String, 
	types : Type[]
) : PropertyInfo

Parameters

name

The String containing the name of the public property to get.

types

An array of Type objects representing the number, order, and type of the parameters for the indexed property to get.

-or-

An empty array of the type Type (that is, Type[] types = new Type[0]) to get a property that is not indexed.

Return Value

A PropertyInfo object representing the public property whose parameters match the specified argument types, if found; otherwise, a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
Exception typeCondition

AmbiguousMatchException

More than one property is found with the specified name and matching the specified argument types.

ArgumentNullException

name is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

-or-

types is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

-or-

One of the elements in types is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

ArgumentException

types is multidimensional.

The search for name is case-sensitive. The search includes public static and public instance properties.

If the requested type is non-public and the caller does not have ReflectionPermission to reflect non-public objects outside the current assembly, this method returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

If the current T:System.Type represents a constructed generic type, this method returns the PropertyInfo with the type parameters replaced by the appropriate type arguments.

If the current Type represents a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or generic method, this method searches the properties of the class constraint.

The following example retrieves the Type object of a user-defined class, retrieves the property of that class, and displays the property name and type of the property as specified by the arguments passed to GetProperty.


using System;
using System.Reflection;
class MyClass1
{         
    private int [,] myArray = {{1,2},{3,4}}; 
    // Declare an indexer.
    public int this [int i,int j]   
    {
        get 
        {
            return myArray[i,j];
        }
        set 
        {
            myArray[i,j] = value;
        }
    }
}
public class MyTypeClass
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {
        try
        { 
            // Get the Type object.
            Type myType=typeof(MyClass1);       
            Type[] myTypeArr = new Type[2];
            // Create an instance of a Type array.
            myTypeArr.SetValue(typeof(int),0);            
            myTypeArr.SetValue(typeof(int),1);
            // Get the PropertyInfo object for the indexed property Item, which has two integer parameters. 
            PropertyInfo myPropInfo = myType.GetProperty("Item", myTypeArr);
            // Display the property.
            Console.WriteLine("The {0} property exists in MyClass1.", myPropInfo.ToString());
        }           
        catch(NullReferenceException e)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("An exception occurred.");
            Console.WriteLine("Source : {0}" , e.Source);
            Console.WriteLine("Message : {0}" , e.Message);
        }
    }

            Console.WriteLine("Message : {0}", e.get_Message());
        }
    } //main
} //MyTypeClass

Internally, this property is referred to by the name "Item" in the metadata. Therefore, any attempt to get PropertyInfo using reflection must specify this internal name in order for the PropertyInfo to be returned correctly.
