TypeDescriptionProvider.GetReflectionType Method (Type, Object)

Type: System.Type

The type of object for which to retrieve the IReflect.

Type: System.Object

An instance of the type. Can be null.

Return Value

Type: System.Type
The type of reflection for this objectType.

The GetReflectionType method is a lower-level version of the GetTypeDescriptor method. If no custom type descriptor can be located for an object, GetReflectionType is called to perform normal reflection against the object.

Notes to Inheritors

This method is prototyped as virtual, and by default returns objectType if no parent provider was passed. If a parent provider was passed, this method will invoke the parent provider's GetReflectionType method.
