abstract Namespace : string with get

Property Value

Type: System.String

The namespace of the Type; null if the current instance has no namespace or represents a generic parameter.

Implements

_Type.Namespace

A namespace is a logical design-time naming convenience, used mainly to define scope in an application and organize classes and other types in a single hierarchical structure. From the viewpoint of the runtime, there are no namespaces.

If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this property returns the namespace that contains the generic type definition. Similarly, if the current Type represents a generic parameter T, this property returns the namespace that contains the generic type definition that defines T.

If the current Type object represents a generic parameter, this property returns null.

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