MemberInfo::ReflectedType Property

Gets the class object that was used to obtain this instance of MemberInfo.

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

virtual property Type^ ReflectedType {
	Type^ get () abstract;

Property Value

Type: System::Type
The Type object through which this MemberInfo object was obtained.



The ReflectedType property retrieves the Type object that was used to obtain this instance of MemberInfo. This may differ from the value of the DeclaringType property if this MemberInfo object represents a member that is inherited from a base class.

If the MemberInfo object is a global member (that is, if it was obtained from the Module::GetMethods method, which returns global methods on a module), the returned DeclaringType will be nullptr.

The following code example shows how the ReflectedType changes when the member Object::ToString is viewed from a MemberInfo obtained from type Object and from a MemberInfo obtained from the MemberInfo class itself, which inherits Object but does not override Object::ToString.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;

int main()
    MemberInfo^ m1 = Object::typeid->GetMethod("ToString");
    MemberInfo^ m2 = MemberInfo::typeid->GetMethod("ToString");

    Console::WriteLine("m1.DeclaringType: {0}", m1->DeclaringType);
    Console::WriteLine("m1.ReflectedType: {0}", m1->ReflectedType);
    Console::WriteLine("m2.DeclaringType: {0}", m2->DeclaringType);
    Console::WriteLine("m2.ReflectedType: {0}", m2->ReflectedType);


/* This code example produces the following output:

m1.DeclaringType: System.Object
m1.ReflectedType: System.Object

m2.DeclaringType: System.Object
m2.ReflectedType: System.Reflection.MemberInfo
