Member nameDescription
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkSupported by the XNA FrameworkConstructorSpecifies that the member is a constructor, representing a ConstructorInfo member. Hexadecimal value of 0x01.
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkSupported by the XNA FrameworkEventSpecifies that the member is an event, representing an EventInfo member. Hexadecimal value of 0x02.
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkSupported by the XNA FrameworkFieldSpecifies that the member is a field, representing a FieldInfo member. Hexadecimal value of 0x04.
Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkSupported by the XNA FrameworkMethodSpecifies that the member is a method, representing a MethodInfo member. Hexadecimal value of 0x08.

Supported by the .NET Compact FrameworkSupported by the XNA FrameworkAllSpecifies all member types.

These enum values are returned by MemberType and are useful in switch statements. MemberTypes matches CorTypeAttr as defined in the corhdr.h file.

To obtain the MemberTypes value for a method:

  • First get a Type.

  • From the Type, get the MemberInfo array.

  • From the MemberInfo array, get the MemberType.

The following example displays the member types for the specified class.

using System;
using System.Reflection;

class membertypesenum 
{
    public static int Main(string[] args) 
    {
        Console.WriteLine ("\nReflection.MemberTypes");
        MemberTypes Mymembertypes;

        // Get the type of a chosen class.
        Type Mytype = Type.GetType
            ("System.Reflection.ReflectionTypeLoadException");

        // Get the MemberInfo array.
        MemberInfo[] Mymembersinfoarray = Mytype.GetMembers();

        // Get and display the name and the MemberType for each member. 
        foreach (MemberInfo Mymemberinfo in Mymembersinfoarray) 
        { 
            Mymembertypes = Mymemberinfo.MemberType; 
            Console.WriteLine("The member {0} of {1} is a {2}.", Mymemberinfo.Name, Mytype, Mymembertypes.ToString());
        }
        return 0;
    }
}
