Type::IsArray Property

Gets a value indicating whether the Type is an array.

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

public:
virtual property bool IsArray {
	bool get () sealed;
}

Property Value

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

Implements

_Type::IsArray

The IsArray property returns false for the Array class.

To check for an array, use code such as typeof(Array).IsAssignableFrom(type).

If the current Type represents a generic type, or a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or generic method, this property always returns false.

This property is read-only.

The following example demonstrates using the IsArray property.


using namespace System;
int main()
{
   array<Int32>^array = {1,2,3,4};
   Type^ at = Array::typeid;
   Type^ t = array->GetType();
   Console::WriteLine( "The type is {0}. Is this type an array? {1}", at, at->IsArray.ToString() );
   Console::WriteLine( "The type is {0}. Is this type an array? {1}", t, t->IsArray.ToString() );
}


This code produces the following output:

Type is System.Array. IsArray? False
Type is System.Int32[]. IsArray? True
