Module.FilterTypeName Field

A TypeFilter object that filters the list of types defined in this module based upon the name. This field is case-sensitive and read-only.

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

public static readonly TypeFilter FilterTypeName
public static final TypeFilter FilterTypeName
public static final var FilterTypeName : TypeFilter

The filter supports a trailing "*" wildcard.

The following example displays the module names that match the specified search criteria.

using System;
using System.Reflection;

namespace ReflectionModule_Examples
{
    class MyMainClass
    {
        static void Main()
        {
            Module[] moduleArray;
            
            moduleArray = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetModules(false);
            
            // In a simple project with only one module, the module at index
            // 0 will be the module containing these classes.
            Module myModule = moduleArray[0];

            Type[] tArray;

            tArray = myModule.FindTypes(Module.FilterTypeName, "My*");
            
            foreach(Type t in tArray)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("Found a module beginning with My*: {0}.", t.Name);
            }
        }
    }

    class MySecondClass
    {
    }

    // This class does not fit the filter criteria My*.
    class YourClass
    {
    }
}

        // 0 will be the module containing these classes.
        Module myModule = (Module)moduleArray.get_Item(0);
        Type tArray[];
        tArray = myModule.FindTypes(Module.FilterTypeName, "My*");
        for (int iCtr = 0; iCtr < tArray.length; iCtr++) {
            Type t = tArray[iCtr];
            Console.WriteLine("Found a module beginning with My*: {0}.",
