public sealed class ObjectType

The ObjectType type exposes the following members.

Public methodObjectTypeInfrastructure. Initializes a new instance of the ObjectType class.

Public methodStatic memberAddObjInfrastructure. Performs an addition (+) operation.
Public methodStatic memberBitAndObjInfrastructure. Performs a bitwise And operation.
Public methodStatic memberBitOrObjInfrastructure. Performs a bitwise Or operation.
Public methodStatic memberBitXorObjInfrastructure. Performs an Xor operation.
Public methodStatic memberDivObjInfrastructure. Performs a division (/) operation.
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 methodStatic memberGetObjectValuePrimitiveInfrastructure. Returns a boxed primitive value. This method is used to prevent copying structures multiple times.
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberIDivObjPerforms an integer division (\) operation.
Public methodStatic memberLikeObjInfrastructure. Performs a Like comparison.
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberModObjInfrastructure. Performs a modulus (Mod) operation.
Public methodStatic memberMulObjInfrastructure. Performs a multiplication (*) operation.
Public methodStatic memberNegObjInfrastructure. Performs a unary minus (–) operation.
Public methodStatic memberNotObjInfrastructure. Performs a Not operation.
Public methodStatic memberObjTstInfrastructure. Performs binary or text string comparison when given two objects.
Public methodStatic memberPlusObjInfrastructure. Performs a unary plus (+) operation.
Public methodStatic memberPowObjInfrastructure. Performs an exponent (^) operation.
Public methodStatic memberShiftLeftObjInfrastructure. Performs an arithmetic left shift (<<) operation.
Public methodStatic memberShiftRightObjInfrastructure. Performs an arithmetic right shift (>>) operation.
Public methodStatic memberStrCatObjInfrastructure. Performs a string concatenation (&) operation.
Public methodStatic memberSubObjInfrastructure. Performs a subtraction (–) operation.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodStatic memberXorObjInfrastructure. Performs an Xor comparison.

This class supports the Visual Basic compiler and is not intended to be used directly from your code.
