Returns the public and non-public nested types that are declared by this type.

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

public override Type GetNestedType(
	string name,
	BindingFlags bindingAttr


Type: System.String
The name of the nested type to get.
Type: System.Reflection.BindingFlags
A bitmask that includes one or more BindingFlags that specify how the search is conducted.

Return Value

Type: System.Type
The nested type that matches the specified requirements, if found; otherwise, null.


This method is not implemented for incomplete types.

This method is not supported for incomplete types. Get the completed type by calling CreateType, and use reflection on the completed type.

If this type is complete, for example, if CreateType has been called on this type, but there are nested types that are not complete, then GetNestedTypes will only return those nested types for which CreateType has been called.


Supported in: 5, 4, 3
