Type.GetInterface Method (String, Boolean)

When overridden in a derived class, searches for the specified interface, specifying whether to do a case-sensitive search.

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

public abstract Type GetInterface (
	string name,
	bool ignoreCase
)
public abstract Type GetInterface (
	String name, 
	boolean ignoreCase
)
public abstract function GetInterface (
	name : String, 
	ignoreCase : boolean
) : Type

Parameters

name

The String containing the name of the interface to get. For generic interfaces, this is the mangled name.

ignoreCase

true to perform a case-insensitive search for name.

-or-

false to perform a case-sensitive search for name.

Return Value

A Type object representing the interface with the specified name, implemented or inherited by the current Type, if found; otherwise, a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
Exception typeCondition

ArgumentNullException

name is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

AmbiguousMatchException

The current Type represents a type that implements the same generic interface with different type arguments.

If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this method returns the Type with the type parameters replaced by the appropriate type arguments.

If the current Type represents a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or generic method, this method searches the interface constraints and any interfaces inherited from class or interface constraints.

NoteNote

For generic interfaces, the name parameter is the mangled name, ending with a grave accent (`) and the number of type parameters. This is true for both generic interface definitions and constructed generic interfaces. For example, to find IExample<T> (IExample(Of T) in Visual Basic) or IExample<string> (IExample(Of String) in Visual Basic), search for "IExample`1".
