Property Value

A String containing the name of this member.

Only the simple name of the member is returned, not the fully qualified name.

To get the Name property, get the class Type. From the Type, get the MemberInfo array. From a MemberInfo element of the array, obtain the Name property.

This example lists the Name and DeclaringType property of each member of the specified class.
