GenericTypeParameterBuilder.GetElementType Method

Throws a NotSupportedException in all cases.

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

public override Type GetElementType()

Return Value

Type: System.Type
The type referred to by the current array type, pointer type, or ByRef type; or null if the current type is not an array type, is not a pointer type, and is not passed by reference.

Implements

_Type.GetElementType()

ExceptionCondition
NotSupportedException

In all cases.

A generic type parameter is a placeholder for a type. Because that type cannot be known in advance, there is no way to know whether it has an element type or what that element type might be. Any return value would be misleading, so the method throws a NotSupportedException.
