System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetTypeForObject(Object)

Gets the representation of the type of the specified object in this reflection context.

System_CAPS_pubmethodMapAssembly(Assembly)

Gets the representation, in this reflection context, of an assembly that is represented by an object from another reflection context.

System_CAPS_pubmethodMapType(TypeInfo)

Gets the representation, in this reflection context, of a type represented by an object from another reflection context.

The purpose of this class is to provide a way for reflection code to be made aware when reflection objects originate in a context other than the default reflection context, so that operations on those objects can use that context. For example, reflection objects that originate with a CustomReflectionContext object should be compared only with reflection objects that have the same origin. For more information, see the CustomReflectionContext reference page.
