Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

ConstructorInfo[] GetConstructors (
	BindingFlags bindingAttr
ConstructorInfo[] GetConstructors (
	BindingFlags bindingAttr

Return Value

An array of ConstructorInfo objects representing all constructors defined for the current Type that match the specified binding constraints, including the type initializer if it is defined. Returns an empty array of type ConstructorInfo if no constructors are defined for the current Type, if none of the defined constructors match the binding constraints, or if the current Type represents a type parameter of a generic type or method definition.

This method is for access to managed classes from unmanaged code, and should not be called from managed code.

The Type.GetConstructors method searches for the constructors defined for the current Type, using the specified BindingFlags.
