ParameterInfo.IsOut Property

Gets a value indicating whether this is an output parameter.

Namespace:  System.Reflection
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public bool IsOut { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the parameter is an output parameter; otherwise, false.

This method depends on an optional metadata flag. This flag can be inserted by compilers, but the compilers are not obligated to do so.

This method utilizes the Out flag of the ParameterAttributes enumerator.

To get the ParameterInfo array, first get the method or the constructor and then call MethodBase.GetParameters.

The following example shows how to test method parameters for the ParameterAttributes.In, ParameterAttributes.Out, and ParameterAttributes.Optional attributes.

The example contains a DefineMethod method that does the following:

After executing DefineMethod, the example searches the assemblies that are currently loaded until it finds the dynamic assembly. It loads MyType from the assembly, gets a MethodInfo object for the MyMethod method, and examines the parameters. The example uses the IsIn, IsOut, and IsOptional properties to display information about the parameters.

using System;
using System.Reflection;

 class parminfo
 {
    public static void mymethod (
       int int1m, out string str2m, ref string str3m)
    {
       str2m = "in mymethod";
    }

    public static int Main(string[] args)
    {
       Console.WriteLine("\nReflection.Parameterinfo");

       //Get the ParameterInfo parameter of a function. 

       //Get the type.
       Type Mytype = Type.GetType("parminfo");

       //Get and display the method.
       MethodBase Mymethodbase = Mytype.GetMethod("mymethod");
       Console.Write("\nMymethodbase = " + Mymethodbase);

       //Get the ParameterInfo array.
       ParameterInfo[] Myarray = Mymethodbase.GetParameters();

       //Get and display the IsOut of each parameter. 
       foreach (ParameterInfo Myparam in Myarray)
       {
          Console.Write ("\nFor parameter # "   + Myparam.Position 
             + ", the IsOut is - " +  Myparam.IsOut );
       }
       return 0;
    }
 }

 Mymethodbase = Void mymethod (Int32, System.String ByRef, System.String ByRef)
 For parameter # 0, the IsOut is - False
 For parameter # 1, the IsOut is - True
