Type.IsNestedPublic Property

Gets a value indicating whether a class is nested and declared public.

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

'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property IsNestedPublic As Boolean
'Usage
Dim instance As Type
Dim value As Boolean

value = instance.IsNestedPublic

/** @property */
public final boolean get_IsNestedPublic ()

public final function get IsNestedPublic () : boolean

Not applicable.

Property Value

true if the class is nested and declared public; otherwise, false.

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

TypeAttributes.VisibilityMask selects the visibility attributes.

The following example declares a public nested class and displays its IsNestedPublic property value.

Imports System
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic
' Enclose a class.
Public Class MyClassA
    ' Public nested class.
    Public Class MyClassB
    End Class 'MyClassB
    Public Shared Sub Main()
        ' Get the type of the nested class.
        Dim myTypeB As Type = GetType(MyClassA.MyClassB)
        ' Get the IsNestedPublic property of the nested class.
        Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "The IsNestedPublic property value of the nested class is {0}.", myTypeB.IsNestedPublic.ToString())
    End Sub 'Main
End Class 'MyClassA

import System.*;

// Enclose a class.
public class MyClassA
{
    // Public nested class.
    public class MyClassB
    {
    } //MyClassB

    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Get the type of the nested class.
        Type myTypeB = MyClassA.MyClassB.class.ToType();
        // Get the IsNestedPublic property of the nested class.
        Console.WriteLine("\nThe IsNestedPublic property value of the nested" 
            + " class is {0}.", System.Convert.ToString(
            myTypeB.get_IsNestedPublic()));
    } //main
} //MyClassA
