Type.IsNestedAssembly Property

Gets a value indicating whether the Type is nested and visible only within its own assembly.

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

public bool IsNestedAssembly { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the Type is nested and visible only within its own assembly; otherwise, false.

Implements

_Type.IsNestedAssembly

If the current Type represents a type parameter of a generic type, this property always returns false.

TypeAttributes.VisibilityMask selects the visibility attributes.

The following example declares a nested class with visibility in its own assembly, and displays its IsNestedAssembly property value.

using System;
// Nest a class. 
class MyClassA
{
    internal class MyClassB
    {
    }
}
class MyTestClass
{
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {  
        // Get the type of the nested class.
        Type myTypeB = typeof(MyClassA.MyClassB);
        // Get the IsNestedAssembly property  of the nested class.
        Console.WriteLine("\nThe IsNestedAssembly property value of MyClassB is {0}.", myTypeB.IsNestedAssembly.ToString());
    }
}
