FieldInfo.IsStatic Property

Gets a value indicating whether the field is static.

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

public bool IsStatic { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if this field is static; otherwise, false.

Implements

_FieldInfo.IsStatic

When a field is static, one copy of the field is shared by all instances of the type.

The IsStatic property is set when the FieldAttributes.Static attribute is set.

To get the IsStatic property, first get the class Type. From the Type, get the FieldInfo. From the FieldInfo, get the IsStatic property. To access a non-public field, set the BindingFlags to NonPublic in the GetField method and set the accessibility to Instance or Static.

The following example determines whether the specified field is static and displays the result.

using System;
using System.Reflection;

 // Make two fields. 
public class Myfielda
{
    private string field = "A private field";
    public string Field
    {
        get{return field;}
        set{if(field!=value){field=value;}}
    }
}
public class Myfieldb
{
    static string field = "B private static field";
    public string Field 
    {
        get{return field;}
        set{if(field!=value){field=value;}}
    }
}

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

        // Get the Type and FieldInfo.
        Type MyTypea = typeof(Myfielda);
        FieldInfo Myfieldinfoa = MyTypea.GetField("field", BindingFlags.NonPublic|BindingFlags.Instance);
        Type MyTypeb = typeof(Myfieldb);
        FieldInfo Myfieldinfob = MyTypeb.GetField("field", BindingFlags.NonPublic|BindingFlags.Static);

        // For the first field, get and display the name, field, and IsStatic property value.
        Console.Write("\n{0} - ", MyTypea.FullName);
        Console.Write("{0}; ", Myfieldinfoa.GetValue(Myfielda));
        Console.Write("IsStatic - {0}", Myfieldinfoa.IsStatic);

        // For the second field get and display the name, field, and IsStatic property value.
        Console.Write("\n{0} - ", MyTypeb.FullName);
        Console.Write("{0}; ", Myfieldinfob.GetValue(Myfieldb));
        Console.Write("IsStatic - {0}", Myfieldinfob.IsStatic);

        return 0;
    }
}

This code produces the following output:

Reflection.FieldInfo

Myfielda - A private field; IsStatic - False

Myfieldb - B static field; IsStatic - True
