MethodInfo.MemberType Property

Gets a MemberTypes value indicating that this member is a method.

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

'Declaration
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property MemberType As MemberTypes

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection.MemberTypes
A MemberTypes value indicating that this member is a method.

Implements

_MethodInfo.MemberType
_MemberInfo.MemberType

This property overrides MemberInfo.MemberType. Therefore, when you examine a set of MemberInfo objects — for example, the array returned by GetMembers — the MemberType property returns MemberTypes.Method only when a given member is a method.

To get the MemberType property, first get the class Type. From the Type, get the MethodInfo. From the MethodInfo, get the MemberType.

The following example displays the type of the specified member.


Imports System
Imports System.Reflection

Class MyMethodInfo

    Public Shared Function Main() As Integer
        Console.WriteLine("Reflection.MethodInfo")

        ' Get the Type and MethodInfo.
        Dim MyType As Type = Type.GetType("System.Reflection.FieldInfo")
        Dim Mymethodinfo As MethodInfo = MyType.GetMethod("GetValue")
        Console.WriteLine(MyType.FullName + "." + Mymethodinfo.Name)

        ' Get and display the MemberType property.
        Dim Mymembertypes As MemberTypes = Mymethodinfo.MemberType

        If MemberTypes.Constructor = Mymembertypes Then
            Console.WriteLine("MemberType is of type All.")

        ElseIf MemberTypes.Custom = Mymembertypes Then
            Console.WriteLine("MemberType is of type Custom.")

        ElseIf MemberTypes.Event = Mymembertypes Then
            Console.WriteLine("MemberType is of type Event.")

        ElseIf MemberTypes.Field = Mymembertypes Then
            Console.WriteLine("MemberType is of type Field.")

        ElseIf MemberTypes.Method = Mymembertypes Then
            Console.WriteLine("MemberType is of type Method.")

        ElseIf MemberTypes.Property = Mymembertypes Then
            Console.WriteLine("MemberType is of type Property.")

        ElseIf MemberTypes.TypeInfo = Mymembertypes Then
            Console.WriteLine("MemberType is of type TypeInfo.")

        End If
        Return 0
    End Function
End Class
