public override Type[] GetGenericArguments()

Return Value

Type: System.Type[]
An array of Type objects. The elements of the array represent the type arguments of a generic type or the type parameters of a generic type definition.

The elements of the returned array are in the order in which they appear in the list of type parameters for the generic type definition.

A TypeBuilder object represents a generic type definition if the DefineGenericParameters method has been used to give it generic type parameters. This method retrieves the GenericTypeParameterBuilder objects that represent the generic type parameters.
