IsMarshalByRef Property

Type.IsMarshalByRef Property

Gets a value indicating whether the Type is marshaled by reference.

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

public bool IsMarshalByRef { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the Type is marshaled by reference; otherwise, false.

Implements

_Type.IsMarshalByRef

The following example demonstrates the IsContextful, IsMarshalByRef, and IsPrimitive properties of the Type class. It checks whether the given type can be hosted in the context, whether it can be marshaled by reference, and whether the type is a primitive data type.

using System;
using System.Runtime.Remoting.Contexts;

public class ContextBoundClass: ContextBoundObject
{
    public string Value = "The Value property.";
}

public class Example
{
    public static void Main()
    {
         // Determine whether the types can be hosted in a Context.
         Console.WriteLine("The IsContextful property for the {0} type is {1}.",
                           typeof(Example).Name, typeof(Example).IsContextful);
         Console.WriteLine("The IsContextful property for the {0} type is {1}.",
                           typeof(ContextBoundClass).Name, typeof(ContextBoundClass).IsContextful);

         // Determine whether the types are marshalled by reference.
         Console.WriteLine("The IsMarshalByRef property of {0} is {1}.",
                           typeof(Example).Name, typeof(Example).IsMarshalByRef);
         Console.WriteLine("The IsMarshalByRef property of {0} is {1}.",
                           typeof(ContextBoundClass).Name, typeof(ContextBoundClass).IsMarshalByRef);

         // Determine whether the types are primitive datatypes.
         Console.WriteLine("{0} is a primitive data type: {1}.",
                           typeof(int).Name, typeof(int).IsPrimitive);
         Console.WriteLine("{0} is a primitive data type: {1}.",
                           typeof(string).Name, typeof(string).IsPrimitive);
    }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//    The IsContextful property for the Example type is False. 
//    The IsContextful property for the ContextBoundClass type is True. 
//    The IsMarshalByRef property of Example is False. 
//    The IsMarshalByRef property of ContextBoundClass is True. 
//    Int32 is a primitive data type: True. 
//    String is a primitive data type: False.
