Assembly::GetExportedTypes Method

Gets the public types defined in this assembly that are visible outside the assembly.

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

public:
virtual array<Type^>^ GetExportedTypes()

Return Value

Type: array<System::Type>
An array that represents the types defined in this assembly that are visible outside the assembly.

Implements

_Assembly::GetExportedTypes()

ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

The assembly is a dynamic assembly.

The only types visible outside an assembly are public types and public types nested within other public types.

The following code sample defines a number of classes with various access levels, and calls GetExportedTypes to display the ones that are visible from outside the assembly.


using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;

namespace ExportedClassExample
{
    public ref class Example sealed
    {
    private:
        Example() 
        {
        }

    public:
        void static EnumerateExportedTypes()
        {
            for each (Type^ exportedType in 
                Assembly::GetExecutingAssembly()->GetExportedTypes())
            {
                Console::WriteLine(exportedType);
            }
        }
    };

    public ref class PublicClass
    {
    public:
        ref class PublicNestedClass 
        { 
        };

    protected:
        ref class ProtectedNestedClass 
        { 
        };

    internal:
        ref class FriendNestedClass 
        { 
        };

    private:
        ref class PrivateNestedClass
        { 
        };
    };

    ref class FriendClass
    {
    public:
        ref class PublicNestedClass
        { 
        };

    protected:
        ref class ProtectedNestedClass 
        { 
        };

    internal:
        ref class FriendNestedClass 
        { 
        };

    private:
        ref class PrivateNestedClass 
        { 
        };
    };
}

int main()
{
    ExportedClassExample::Example::EnumerateExportedTypes();

    return 0;
}
