MemberInfo::Name Property

Gets the name of the current member.

Namespace:  System.Reflection
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
public:
virtual property String^ Name {
	String^ get () abstract;
}

Property Value

Type: System::String
A String containing the name of this member.

Implements

_MemberInfo::Name

Only the simple name of the member is returned, not the fully qualified name.

To get the Name property, get the class Type. From the Type, get the MemberInfo array. From a MemberInfo element of the array, obtain the Name property.

This example lists the Name and DeclaringType property of each member of the specified class.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
int main()
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nReflection.MemberInfo" );

   // Get the Type and MemberInfo.
   Type^ MyType = Type::GetType( "System.Empty" );
   array<MemberInfo^>^Mymemberinfoarray = MyType->GetMembers();

   // Get and display the DeclaringType method.
   Console::Write( "\nThere are {0} members in ", Mymemberinfoarray->GetLength( 0 ) );
   Console::Write( "{0}.", MyType->FullName );
   System::Collections::IEnumerator^ enum0 = Mymemberinfoarray->GetEnumerator();
   while ( enum0->MoveNext() )
   {
      MemberInfo^ Mymemberinfo = safe_cast<MemberInfo^>(enum0->Current);
      Console::Write( "\n{0} declaring type - {1}", Mymemberinfo->Name, Mymemberinfo->DeclaringType );
   }
}
