ConstructorBuilder.DeclaringType Property

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

Namespace: System.Reflection.Emit
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public override Type DeclaringType { get; }
/** @property */
public Type get_DeclaringType ()

public override function get DeclaringType () : Type

Property Value

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

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.

MethodBuilder myMethodBuilder=null;

AppDomain myCurrentDomain = AppDomain.CurrentDomain;
// Create assembly in current CurrentDomain
AssemblyName myAssemblyName = new AssemblyName();
myAssemblyName.Name = "TempAssembly";
// Create a dynamic assembly
myAssemblyBuilder = myCurrentDomain.DefineDynamicAssembly
   (myAssemblyName, AssemblyBuilderAccess.RunAndSave);
// Create a dynamic module in the assembly.
myModuleBuilder = myAssemblyBuilder.DefineDynamicModule("TempModule");
FieldInfo myFieldInfo =
   myModuleBuilder.DefineUninitializedData("myField",2,FieldAttributes.Public);
// Create a type in the module
TypeBuilder myTypeBuilder = myModuleBuilder.DefineType("TempClass",TypeAttributes.Public);
FieldBuilder myGreetingField = myTypeBuilder.DefineField("Greeting",
   typeof(String), FieldAttributes.Public);
Type[] myConstructorArgs = { typeof(String) };
// Define a constructor of the dynamic class.
ConstructorBuilder myConstructor = myTypeBuilder.DefineConstructor(
   MethodAttributes.Public, CallingConventions.Standard, myConstructorArgs);
PermissionSet myPset = new PermissionSet(PermissionState.Unrestricted);
// Add declarative security to the constructor.
Console.WriteLine("Adding declarative security to the constructor.....");
Console.WriteLine("The Security action to be taken is \"DENY\" and" +
   " Permission set is \"UNRESTRICTED\".");
myConstructor.AddDeclarativeSecurity(SecurityAction.Deny,myPset);
MethodAttributes myMethodAttributes = myConstructor.Attributes;
Type myAttributeType = typeof(MethodAttributes);
int myAttribValue = (int) myMethodAttributes;
if(! myAttributeType.IsEnum)
{
   Console.WriteLine("This is not an Enum");
}
FieldInfo[] myFieldInfo1 = myAttributeType.GetFields(BindingFlags.Public | BindingFlags.Static);
Console.WriteLine("The Field info names of the Attributes for the constructor are:");
for (int i = 0; i < myFieldInfo1.Length; i++)
{
   int myFieldValue = (Int32)myFieldInfo1[i].GetValue(null);
   if ((myFieldValue & myAttribValue) == myFieldValue)
   {
      Console.WriteLine("   " + myFieldInfo1[i].Name);
   }
}

Type myType2 = myConstructor.DeclaringType;
Console.WriteLine("The declaring type is : "+myType2.ToString());
