Type.IsContextfulImpl Method

Implements the IsContextful property and determines whether the Type can be hosted in a context.

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

Protected Overridable Function IsContextfulImpl As Boolean

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the Type can be hosted in a context; otherwise, false.

This method can be overridden by a derived class.

A context intercepts calls to the class members and enforce policies that are applied to the class, such as synchronization.

The following example demonstrates a use of the IsContextfulImpl method.

Imports System
Imports System.Reflection
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic
Public Class MyTypeDelegatorClass
    Inherits TypeDelegator
    Public myElementType As String = Nothing 
    Private myType As Type = Nothing 
    Public Sub New(ByVal myType As Type)
        Me.myType = myType
    End Sub 'New 
    ' Override IsContextfulImpl. 
    Protected Overrides Function IsContextfulImpl() As Boolean 
        ' Check whether the type is contextful. 
        If myType.IsContextful Then
            myElementType = " is contextful " 
            Return True 
        End If 
        Return False 
    End Function 'IsContextfulImpl
End Class 'MyTypeDelegatorClass
Public Class MyTypeDemoClass
    Public Shared Sub Main()
            Dim myType As MyTypeDelegatorClass
            Console.WriteLine("Check whether MyContextBoundClass can be hosted in a context.")
            ' Check whether MyContextBoundClass is contextful.
            myType = New MyTypeDelegatorClass(GetType(MyContextBoundClass))
            If myType.IsContextful Then
                Console.WriteLine(GetType(MyContextBoundClass).ToString() + " can be hosted in a context.")
                Console.WriteLine(GetType(MyContextBoundClass).ToString() + " cannot be hosted in a context.")
            End If 
            ' Check whether the int type is contextful.
            myType = New MyTypeDelegatorClass(GetType(MyTypeDemoClass))
            Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.NewLine + "Check whether MyTypeDemoClass can be hosted in a context.")
            If myType.IsContextful Then
                Console.WriteLine(GetType(MyTypeDemoClass).ToString() + " can be hosted in a context.")
                Console.WriteLine(GetType(MyTypeDemoClass).ToString() + " cannot be hosted in a context.")
            End If 
        Catch e As Exception
            Console.WriteLine("Exception: {0}", e.Message.ToString())
        End Try 
    End Sub 'Main
End Class 'MyTypeDemoClass
' This class demonstrates the IsContextfulImpl method. 
Public Class MyContextBoundClass
    Inherits ContextBoundObject
    Public myString As String = "This class is used to demonstrate members of the Type class." 
End Class 'MyContextBoundClass
