Type.IsMarshalByRef Property

Gets a value indicating whether the Type is marshaled by reference.

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

public bool IsMarshalByRef { get; }
/** @property */
public final boolean get_IsMarshalByRef ()

public final function get IsMarshalByRef () : boolean

Not applicable.

Property Value

true if the Type is marshaled by reference; otherwise, false.

The following example demonstrates the IsContextful, IsMarshalByRef, and IsPrimitive properties of the Type class. It checks whether the given type can be hosted in the context, whether it can be marshaled by reference, and whether the type is a primitive data type.

using System;
using System.Runtime.Remoting.Contexts;
public class MyContextBoundClass: ContextBoundObject
{
    public string myString = "This class demonstrates the IsContextful, IsMarshalByRef, and IsPrimitive properties.";
}
public class MyTypeDemoClass
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        try
        {
            // Determine whether the types can be hosted in a Context.
            Console.WriteLine ("The IsContextful property for the {0} type is {1}.", typeof(MyTypeDemoClass).Name, typeof(MyTypeDemoClass).IsContextful);
            Console.WriteLine ("The IsContextful property for the {0} type is {1}.", typeof(MyContextBoundClass).Name, typeof(MyContextBoundClass).IsContextful);

            // Determine whether the types are marshalled by reference.
            Console.WriteLine ("The MarshalByRef property of {0} is {1}.", typeof(MyTypeDemoClass).Name, typeof(MyTypeDemoClass).IsMarshalByRef);
            Console.WriteLine ("The MarshalByRef property of {0} is {1}.", typeof(MyContextBoundClass).Name, typeof(MyContextBoundClass).IsMarshalByRef);
            
            // Determine whether the types are primitive datatypes.
            Console.WriteLine ("Is {0} is a primitive data type? {1}.", typeof(int).Name, typeof(int).IsPrimitive);
            Console.WriteLine ("Is {0} a primitive data type? {1}.", typeof(string).Name, typeof(string).IsPrimitive);
        } 
        catch (Exception e)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("An exception occurred: " + e.Message);
        }
    }
