Module.FilterTypeName Field

A TypeFilter object that filters the list of types defined in this module based upon the name. This field is case-sensitive and read-only.

[Visual Basic]
Public Shared ReadOnly FilterTypeName As TypeFilter
[C#]
public static readonly TypeFilter FilterTypeName;
[C++]
public: static TypeFilter* FilterTypeName;
[JScript]
public static var FilterTypeName : TypeFilter;

Remarks

The filter supports a trailing "*" wildcard.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following example displays the module names that match the specified search criteria.

Imports System
Imports System.Reflection

            ' In a simple project with only one module, the module at index
            ' 0 will be the module containing these classes.
