Type^ GetReflectionType(

Return Value

Type: System::Type

instance is nullptr.

The GetReflectionType method is a lower-level version of the GetTypeDescriptor method. If no custom type descriptor can be located for an object, GetReflectionType is called to perform normal reflection against the object.

Use this method overload if you have called a type descriptor member that uses an instance instead of a type.
