Type.Module Property

Gets the module (the DLL) in which the current Type is defined.

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

'Declaration
Public MustOverride ReadOnly Property Module As Module
'Usage
Dim instance As Type
Dim value As Module

value = instance.Module

/** @property */
public abstract Module get_Module ()

public abstract function get Module () : Module

Property Value

The name of the module in which the current Type is defined.

If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this property returns the module in which the type was defined. For example, if you create an instance of MyGenericStack<int>, the Module property for the constructed type returns the module in which MyGenericStack<T> is defined.

Similarly, if the current Type represents a generic parameter T, this property returns the assembly that contains the generic type that defines T.

This following example demonstrates a use of the Namespace and Module properties and the ToString method of Type.
