MemberInfo.Name Property

Gets the name of the current member.

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

public abstract function get Name () : String

Property Value

Type: System.String
A String containing the name of this member.



Only the simple name of the member is returned, not the fully qualified name.

To get the Name property, get the class Type. From the Type, get the MemberInfo array. From a MemberInfo element of the array, obtain the Name property.

This example lists the Name and DeclaringType property of each member of the specified class.

import System;
import System.Reflection;

class Mymemberinfo
    public static function Main() : void
       Console.WriteLine ("\nReflection.MemberInfo");

       //Get the Type and MemberInfo.
       var MyType : Type = Type.GetType("System.Empty");
       var Mymemberinfoarray : MemberInfo[] = MyType.GetMembers();

       //Get and display the DeclaringType method.
       Console.Write("\nThere are {0} members in ",
       Console.Write("{0}.", MyType.FullName);

       for (var i : int in Mymemberinfoarray)
          var Mymemberinfo : MemberInfo = Mymemberinfoarray[i];
          Console.Write("\n" + Mymemberinfo.Name
             + " declaring type - " +
