Implements

_Type.IsNestedFamANDAssem

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

TypeAttributes.VisibilityMask selects the visibility attributes.

A Type object's family is defined as all objects of the exact same Type and of its subtypes.

The following example demonstrates a use of the IsNestedFamANDAssem property.

Imports System
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic
' Enclose a class. 
Class MyClassA
    ' Protected friend nested class. 
    Protected Friend Class MyClassB
    End Class 'MyClassB
End Class 'MyClassA
Class MyTestClass
    Public Shared Sub Main()
        ' Get the type of the nested class. 
        Dim myTypeB As Type = GetType(MyClassA.MyClassB)
        ' Get the IsNestedFamANDAssem property of the nested class.
        Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "The IsNestedFamANDAssem property value of the nested class is {0}.", myTypeB.IsNestedFamANDAssem.ToString())
    End Sub 'Main
End Class 'MyTestClass
