IsGenericMethod Property

MethodBase.IsGenericMethod Property

Gets a value indicating whether the method is generic.

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

public virtual bool IsGenericMethod { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the current MethodBase represents a generic method; otherwise, false.

Use the IsGenericMethod property to determine whether the current MethodBase object represents a generic method. Use the ContainsGenericParameters property to determine whether the current MethodBase object represents an open constructed method or a closed constructed method.

NoteNote

Generics are not supported by default; this property returns false if not overridden in a derived class. Generic constructors are not supported in the .NET Framework version 2.0, so this property returns false if the current instance is of type ConstructorInfo.

For a list of the invariant conditions for terms specific to generic methods, see the MethodInfo.IsGenericMethod property. For a list of the invariant conditions for other terms used in generic reflection, see the Type.IsGenericType property.
