ConstructorBuilder.DeclaringType Property

Retrieves a reference to the Type object for the type that declares this member.

[Visual Basic]
Overrides Public ReadOnly Property DeclaringType As Type
[C#]
public override Type DeclaringType {get;}
[C++]
public: __property Type* get_DeclaringType();
[JScript]
public override function get DeclaringType() : Type;

Property Value

Returns the Type object for the type that declares this member.

Remarks

A member of a class (or interface) is either declared or inherited from a base class (or interface).

The following code sample illustrates the use of DeclaringType.
