'Declaration
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property MemberType As MemberTypes

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection.MemberTypes
A MemberTypes value indicating that this member is a type or a nested type.

This property overrides MemberInfo.MemberType. Therefore, when you examine a set of MemberInfo objects—for example, the array returned by GetMembers—the MemberType property returns MemberTypes.NestedType when a given member is a nested type.

If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this property applies to the generic type definition from which the type was constructed. For example, if the current Type represents MyGenericType<int> (MyGenericType(Of Integer) in Visual Basic), the value of this property is determined by MyGenericType<T>.

If the current Type represents a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or generic method, this property always returnsMemberTypes.TypeInfo.
