TypeBuilder.DefineNestedType Method (String, TypeAttributes, Type, Int32)
Defines a nested type, given its name, attributes, the total size of the type, and the type that it extends.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration Public Function DefineNestedType ( _ name As String, _ attr As TypeAttributes, _ parent As Type, _ typeSize As Integer _ ) As TypeBuilder
- Type: System.String
The short name of the type. name cannot contain embedded nulls.
- Type: System.Reflection.TypeAttributes
The attributes of the type.
- Type: System.Type
The type that the nested type extends.
- Type: System.Int32
The total size of the type.
Return ValueType: System.Reflection.Emit.TypeBuilder
The defined nested type.
The nested attribute is not specified.
This type is sealed.
This type is an array.
This type is an interface, but the nested type is not an interface.
The length of name is zero or greater than 1023.
This operation would create a type with a duplicate FullName in the current assembly.
name is Nothing.
This method can be used to create nested types even after the CreateType method has been called on the enclosing type.
See the description of CreateType for the order in which nested types and nesting types should be completed.
A duplicate name is not necessarily created if name is identical to the name of a previously defined type or nested type. To be duplicates, the full names must be the same, including the namespace and all nesting types.
