public abstract class MemberInfo

The MemberInfo type exposes the following members.

Protected methodMemberInfoInitializes a new instance of the MemberInfo class.

Public propertyDeclaringTypeGets the class that declares this member.
Public propertyMemberTypeWhen overridden in a derived class, gets a MemberTypes value indicating the type of the member — method, constructor, event, and so on.
Public propertyNameGets the name of the current member.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

The MemberInfo class is the abstract base class for classes used to obtain information about all members of a class (constructors, events, fields, methods, and properties).

This class introduces the basic functionality that all members provide.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
