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 Example
{
   public static int Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      outputBlock.Text += "\nReflection.MemberTypes" + "\n";
      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;
         outputBlock.Text += String.Format("The member {0} of {1} is a {2}.", Mymemberinfo.Name, Mytype, Mymembertypes.ToString()) + "\n";
      }
      return 0;
   }
}
