MemberInfo.MemberType Property

When overridden in a derived class, gets a MemberTypes value indicating the type of the member — method, constructor, event, and so on.

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

Public MustOverride ReadOnly Property MemberType As MemberTypes

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection.MemberTypes
A MemberTypes value indicating the type of member.



This property is overridden in derived classes, and the override returns the appropriate member type. Therefore, when you examine a set of MemberInfo objects — for example, the array returned by GetMembers — the MemberType property can be used to determine the member type of any given member.

To get the MemberType property, get the class Type. From the Type, get the MethodInfo array. From the MethodInfo array, get the MemberTypes.

The following example displays the member name and type of a specified class.

Imports System
Imports System.Reflection
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

Class Mymemberinfo

    Public Shared Function Main() As Integer
        Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "Reflection.MemberInfo")

        ' Get the Type and MemberInfo. 
        Dim MyType As Type = Type.GetType("System.Reflection.PropertyInfo")
        Dim Mymemberinfoarray As MemberInfo() = MyType.GetMembers()

        ' Get the MemberType method and display the elements.
        Console.Write(ControlChars.Cr + "There are {0} members in ", _
        Console.Write("{0}.", MyType.FullName)

        Dim counter As Integer 
        For counter = 0 To Mymemberinfoarray.Length - 1
            Console.Write(ControlChars.CrLf + counter.ToString() + ". " _
               + Mymemberinfoarray(counter).Name _
               + " Member type - " _
               + Mymemberinfoarray(counter).MemberType.ToString())
        Next counter
        Return 0
    End Function 
End Class
