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.

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 Example
{
   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      // Get the type of the nested class.
      Type myTypeB = typeof(MyClassA.MyClassB);
      // Get the IsNestedAssembly property  of the nested class.
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("\nThe IsNestedAssembly property value of MyClassB is {0}.", myTypeB.IsNestedAssembly.ToString()) + "\n";
   }
}
