public abstract Type FieldType { get; }

Property Value

Implements

_FieldInfo.FieldType

The type is some primitive data type, such as String, Boolean, or GUID.

To get the FieldType property, first get the class Type. From the Type, get the FieldInfo. From the FieldInfo, get the FieldType value.

The following example creates a field, gets its type and FieldInfo, and displays its FieldType.


using System;
using System.Reflection;


// Make a field.
public class Myfield
{
    private string field = "private field";
}

public class Myfieldinfo
{
    public static int Main()
    {
        Console.WriteLine ("\nReflection.FieldInfo");
        Myfield Myfield = new Myfield();

        // Get the type and FieldInfo.
        Type MyType = typeof(Myfield);
        FieldInfo Myfieldinfo = MyType.GetField("field", 
            BindingFlags.Instance|BindingFlags.NonPublic);

        // Get and display the FieldType.
        Console.Write ("\n{0}.", MyType.FullName);
        Console.Write ("{0} - ", Myfieldinfo.Name);
        Console.Write ("{0};", Myfieldinfo.GetValue(Myfield));
        Console.Write ("\nFieldType = {0}", Myfieldinfo.FieldType);
    return 0;
    }
}
