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.

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

static initonly TypeFilter^ FilterTypeName
public static final TypeFilter FilterTypeName
public static final var FilterTypeName : TypeFilter
Not applicable.

The filter supports a trailing "*" wildcard.

The following example displays the module names that match the specified search criteria.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
using namespace System::Collections;
public ref class MySecondClass{};

// This class does not fit the filter criterion My*.
public ref class YourClass{};

int main()
   moduleArray = Assembly::GetExecutingAssembly()->GetModules( false );
   // In a simple project with only one module, the module at index
   // 0 will be the module containing these classes.
   Module^ myModule = moduleArray[ 0 ];
   tArray = myModule->FindTypes( Module::FilterTypeName, "My*" );
   IEnumerator^ myEnum = tArray->GetEnumerator();
   while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
      Type^ t = safe_cast<Type^>(myEnum->Current);
      Console::WriteLine( "Found a module beginning with My*: {0}.", t->Name );

class MyMainClass

    public static void main(String[] args)
        Module moduleArray[];
        moduleArray = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetModules(false);

        // In a simple project with only one module, the module at index
        // 0 will be the module containing these classes.
        Module myModule = (Module)moduleArray.get_Item(0);
        Type tArray[];
        tArray = myModule.FindTypes(Module.FilterTypeName, "My*");
        for (int iCtr = 0; iCtr < tArray.length; iCtr++) {
            Type t = tArray[iCtr];
            Console.WriteLine("Found a module beginning with My*: {0}.",
    } //main
} //MyMainClass

class MySecondClass
} //MySecondClass

// This class does not fit the filter criteria My*.
class YourClass
} //YourClass
