MemberInfo.Module Property

Gets the module in which the type that declares the member represented by the current MemberInfo is defined.

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

Public Overridable ReadOnly Property Module As Module

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection.Module
The Module in which the type that declares the member represented by the current MemberInfo is defined.


This method is not implemented.

This property is provided as a convenience. It is equivalent to using the DeclaringType property to get the type in which the method is declared, and then calling the Module property of the resulting Type object.

The following code example declares a class that inherits Object and overrides Object.ToString. The example obtains MethodInfo objects for the class's ToString method and for the inherited GetHashCode method, and displays the names of the modules in which the two methods are declared.

Imports System
Imports System.Reflection

Public Class Test
    Public Overrides Function ToString() As String
        Return "An instance of class Test!"
    End Function
End Class

Public Class Example
    Public Shared Sub Main()
        Dim t As New Test()
        Dim mi As MethodInfo = t.GetType().GetMethod("ToString")
        Console.WriteLine(mi.Name & " is defined in " & mi.Module.Name)

        mi = t.GetType().GetMethod("GetHashCode")
        Console.WriteLine(mi.Name & " is defined in " & mi.Module.Name)
    End Sub
End Class

' This example produces code similar to the following:
'ToString is defined in source.exe
'GetHashCode is defined in mscorlib.dll
