MemberInfo.Name Property

Gets the name of this member.

[Visual Basic]
Public MustOverride ReadOnly Property Name As String
[C#]
public abstract string Name {get;}
[C++]
public: __property virtual String* get_Name() = 0;
[JScript]
public abstract function get Name() : String;

Property Value

A String containing the name of this member.

Remarks

Only the simple name is returned, not the fully qualified name. For example, for a member System.Reflection.MemberTypes.Field, the Name property would be Field.

To get the Name property, get the class Type. From the Type, get the MemberInfo array. From a MemberInfo element of the array, obtain the Name property.

Example

This example lists the Name and DeclaringType property of each member of the specified class.
