Implements

_PropertyInfo.GetSetMethod(Boolean)

ExceptionCondition
SecurityException

The requested method is non-public and the caller does not have ReflectionPermission to reflect on this non-public method.

To use the GetSetMethod method, first get the class Type. From the Type, get the PropertyInfo. From the PropertyInfo, use the GetSetMethod method.

The following example displays the set accessor for the specified property.

using System;
using System.Reflection;

// Define a property. 
public class Myproperty   
{
    private string caption = "A Default caption";
    public string Caption
    {
        get{return caption;}
        set {if(caption!=value) {caption = value;}
        }
    }
}

class Mypropertyinfo
{
    public static int Main()
    {
        Console.WriteLine ("\nReflection.PropertyInfo");

        // Get the type and PropertyInfo for two separate properties.
        Type MyTypea = Type.GetType("Myproperty");
        PropertyInfo Mypropertyinfoa = MyTypea.GetProperty("Caption");
        Type MyTypeb = Type.GetType("System.Text.StringBuilder");
        PropertyInfo Mypropertyinfob = MyTypeb.GetProperty("Length");
        // Get and display the GetSetMethod method for each property.
        MethodInfo Mygetmethodinfoa = Mypropertyinfoa.GetSetMethod();
        Console.Write ("\nSetAccessor for " + Mypropertyinfoa.Name
            + " returns a " + Mygetmethodinfoa.ReturnType);
        MethodInfo Mygetmethodinfob = Mypropertyinfob.GetSetMethod();
        Console.Write ("\nSetAccessor for " + Mypropertyinfob.Name
            + " returns a " + Mygetmethodinfob.ReturnType);

        // Display the GetSetMethod without using the MethodInfo.
        Console.Write ("\n\n" + MyTypea.FullName + "."
            + Mypropertyinfoa.Name + " GetSetMethod - "
            + Mypropertyinfoa.GetSetMethod());
        Console.Write ("\n" + MyTypeb.FullName + "."
            + Mypropertyinfob.Name + " GetSetMethod - "
            + Mypropertyinfob.GetSetMethod());
        return 0;
    }
}
