Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Property ValueType: System.Reflection.Assembly
An Assembly instance that describes the assembly containing the current type. For generic types, the instance describes the assembly that contains the generic type definition, not the assembly that creates and uses a particular constructed type.
If the current Type object represents a constructed generic type, this property returns the assembly that contains the generic type definition. For example, suppose you create an assembly named MyGenerics.dll that contains the generic type definition MyGenericStack<T> (MyGenericStack(Of T) in Visual Basic, generic<T> ref class MyGenericStack in C++). If you create an instance of MyGenericStack<int> (MyGenericStack(Of Integer) in Visual Basic) in another assembly, the property for the constructed type returns an Assembly object that represents MyGenerics.dll.
Similarly, if the current Type object represents an unassigned generic parameter T, this property returns the assembly that contains the generic type that defines T.
This property is read-only.
