Gets a value indicating whether the visibility of this field is described by FieldAttributes.FamANDAssem; that is, the field can be accessed from derived classes, but only if they are in the same assembly.

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

abstract IsFamilyAndAssembly : bool with get
override IsFamilyAndAssembly : bool with get

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if access to this field is exactly described by FieldAttributes.FamANDAssem; otherwise, false.

If a field has FamANDAssem level visibility, it can be called from any member in a derived class that is also in the same assembly, but not from any other type.

The visibility of a field is exactly described by FieldAttributes.FamANDAssem if the visibility modifier is protected private in C++. Fields with this visibility cannot be defined in Visual Basic or C#.

The following code example defines fields with varying levels of visibility, and displays the values of their IsAssembly, IsFamily, IsFamilyOrAssembly, and IsFamilyAndAssembly properties.

System_CAPS_noteNote

The Visual Basic and C# languages cannot define fields with FieldAttributes.FamANDAssem visibility; that access level appears only in the C++ example.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
