Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public override Type DeclaringType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Type
Read-only. The type that declares this method.



The following code illustrates the use of the Type property.

using System;
using System.Reflection;
using System.Reflection.Emit;

public class MethodBuilderClass
   public static void Main()
         // Get the current AppDomain.
         AppDomain myAppDomain = AppDomain.CurrentDomain;

         Console.WriteLine("\nThe Attribute of 'MyDynamicMethod' is :{0}" ,
         Console.WriteLine("\nThe Signature of 'MyDynamicMethod' is : \n"
