TypeBuilder::IsGenericType Property

Gets a value indicating whether the current type is a generic type.

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

virtual property bool IsGenericType {
	bool get () override;

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if the type represented by the current TypeBuilder object is generic; otherwise, false.

A TypeBuilder object represents a generic type definition if the DefineGenericParameters method has been used to give it generic type parameters. An instance of the TypeBuilder class that is generic is always a generic type definition.

For more information on generic types in reflection and a list of the invariant conditions for terms used in generic reflection, see the Type::IsGenericType property.
