Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

/** @property */

Not applicable.

Property Value

The Type object through which this MemberInfo object was obtained.

For Type objects, the value of this property is the same as the value of the DeclaringType property.

This example displays the reflected type of a method in a derived class. Although the method m is declared in MyClassA, its reflected type is obtained from MyClassB.

using System;
using System.Reflection;
 
public abstract class rtype 
{
    public abstract class MyClassA 
    {
        public abstract int m(); 
    }

    public abstract class MyClassB : MyClassA 
    {
    }

    public static void Main(string[] args) 
    { 
        Console.WriteLine("Reflected type of m is {0}",
            typeof(MyClassB).GetMethod("m").ReflectedType);
    }
}

import System.*;
import System.Reflection.*;

abstract public class Rtype
{
    abstract public class MyClassA
    {
        public abstract int M();
    } //MyClassA
      
    abstract public class MyClassB extends MyClassA
    {
    } //MyClassB

    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Reflected type of M is {0}", 
            MyClassB.class.ToType().GetMethod("M").get_ReflectedType());
    } //main
} //Rtype
