The MemberInfo class is the abstract base class for classes used to obtain information about all members of a class (constructors, events, fields, methods, and properties).

This class introduces the basic functionality that all members provide.

Notes to Inheritors:

When you inherit from MemberInfo you must override the following members: GetCustomAttributes and IsDefined.

This example shows how to use various reflection classes to analyze the metadata contained in an assembly.
