MethodBase.IsPublic Property

 

Gets a value indicating whether this is a public method.

Namespace:   System.Reflection
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public bool IsPublic { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if this method is public; otherwise, false.

To get the MethodBase, first get the type. From the type, get the method. From the method, get the MethodBase. If the MethodBase or constructor is other than public, it is protected and cannot be readily accessed. To access a non-public method, set the BindingFlags mask to NonPublic in GetMethod.

The following example uses the IsPublic property to display a message that indicates whether the specified method is public.

class methodbase
{
   public static int Main(string[] args)
   {     

      Console.WriteLine("\nReflection.MethodBase");

      //Get the MethodBase of a method.

      //Get the type
      Type MyType = Type.GetType("System.MulticastDelegate");

      //Get and display the method
      MethodBase Mymethodbase =
         MyType.GetMethod("RemoveImpl",BindingFlags.NonPublic);

      Console.Write("\nMymethodbase = " + Mymethodbase);

      bool Myispublic = Mymethodbase.IsPublic;
      if (Myispublic)
         Console.Write ("\nMymethodbase is a public method");
      else
         Console.Write ("\nMymethodbase is not a public method");

      return 0;
   }
}
/*
Produces the following output

Reflection.MethodBase
Mymethodbase = System.Delegate RemoveImpl (System.Delegate)
Mymethodbase is not a public method
