Module.GetTypes Method

Returns all the types defined within this module.

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

public virtual Type[] GetTypes()

Return Value

Type: System.Type[]
An array of type Type containing types defined within the module that is reflected by this instance.

ExceptionCondition
ReflectionTypeLoadException

One or more classes in a module could not be loaded.

SecurityException

The caller does not have the required permission.

ReflectionTypeLoadException is a special load exception. The ReflectionTypeLoadException.Types property contains the array of types that were defined in the module and were loaded. This array may contain some null values. The ReflectionTypeLoadException.LoaderExceptions property is an array of exceptions that represent the exceptions that were thrown by the loader. The holes in the class array line up with the exceptions.

For example, if the class initializers of one of the classes throws an exception while it is being loaded, a TargetInvocationException is stored in the corresponding element of the LoaderExceptions array.

NoteNote

If a type has been forwarded to another assembly, it is not included in the returned array. For information on type forwarding, see Type Forwarding in the Common Language Runtime.
