Type.Attributes Property

Gets the attributes associated with the Type.

Namespace:  System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property Attributes As TypeAttributes

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection.TypeAttributes
A TypeAttributes object representing the attribute set of the Type, unless the Type represents a generic type parameter, in which case the value is unspecified.

Implements

_Type.Attributes

If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this property returns the attributes of the generic type definition. For example, the attributes returned for MyGenericClass<int> (MyGenericClass(Of Integer) in Visual Basic) are the attributes of MyGenericClass<T> (MyGenericClass(Of T) in Visual Basic).

If the current Type represents a generic type parameter — that is, if the IsGenericParameter property returns true — the TypeAttributes value returned by this property is unspecified.

The following example shows the use of the Type.Attributes property.


Imports System
Imports System.Reflection

Public Class Class1
    Protected t As Type
    Public Sub Method1()
        If (t.Attributes And TypeAttributes.ClassSemanticsMask) = TypeAttributes.Interface Then
            Console.WriteLine("t is an interface.")
        End If
        If (t.Attributes And TypeAttributes.Public) <> 0 Then
            Console.WriteLine("t is public.")
        End If
    End Sub 'Method1
End Class 'Class1
