Type.Attributes Property

Gets the attributes associated with the Type.

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

public TypeAttributes Attributes { get; }

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.

using System;
using System.Reflection;

public class Class1 
{
    protected Type t;
    public void Method1() 
    {
        if ((t.Attributes & TypeAttributes.ClassSemanticsMask) == TypeAttributes.Interface)
            Console.WriteLine ("t is an interface.");
        if ((t.Attributes & TypeAttributes.Public) != 0)
            Console.WriteLine ("t is public.");
    }
}
