Parameters

memberType
Type: System.Reflection.MemberTypes

A MemberTypes object indicating the type of member to search for.

bindingAttr
Type: System.Reflection.BindingFlags

A bitmask comprised of one or more BindingFlags that specify how the search is conducted.

-or-

Zero, to return null.

filter
Type: System.Reflection.MemberFilter

The delegate that does the comparisons, returning true if the member currently being inspected matches the filterCriteria and false otherwise. You can use the FilterAttribute, FilterName, and FilterNameIgnoreCase delegates supplied by this class. The first uses the fields of FieldAttributes, MethodAttributes, and MethodImplAttributes as search criteria, and the other two delegates use String objects as the search criteria.

filterCriteria
Type: System.Object

The search criteria that determines whether a member is returned in the array of MemberInfo objects.

The fields of FieldAttributes, MethodAttributes, and MethodImplAttributes can be used in conjunction with the FilterAttribute delegate supplied by this class.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.MemberInfo[]

A filtered array of MemberInfo objects of the specified member type.

-or-

An empty array of type MemberInfo, if the current Type does not have members of type memberType that match the filter criteria.

This method is for access to managed classes from unmanaged code, and should not be called from managed code.

The Type.FindMembers method returns a filtered array of MemberInfo objects of the specified member type.
