Type.IsPublic Property

Gets a value indicating whether the Type is declared public.

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

public bool IsPublic { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the Type is declared public and is not a nested type; otherwise, false.

Implements

_Type.IsPublic

Do not use with nested types; use IsNestedPublic instead.

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

TypeAttributes.VisibilityMask selects the visibility attributes.

The following example creates an instance of MyTestClass, checks for the IsPublic property, and displays the result.


using System;
namespace SystemType
{
    // Declare MyTestClass as public.
    public class MyTestClass
    {
    }
    public class MyClass
    {
        public static void Main(string []args)
        {
            try
            {
                bool myBool = false;
                MyTestClass myTestClassInstance = new MyTestClass();
                // Get the type of myTestClassInstance.
                Type   myType = myTestClassInstance.GetType();
                // Get the IsPublic property of the myTestClassInstance.
                myBool = myType.IsPublic;
                Console.WriteLine("\nIs {0} public? {1}.", myType.FullName, myBool.ToString ());
            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("\nAn exception occurred: {0}", e.Message);
            }
        }
    }
}


For nested classes, ignore the results of IsPublic and IsNotPublic and pay attention only to the results of IsNestedPublic and IsNestedPrivate.
