Attributes Property

Type::Attributes Property

Gets the attributes associated with the Type.

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

public:
virtual property TypeAttributes Attributes {
	TypeAttributes get () sealed;
}

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection::TypeAttributes
A TypeAttributes object representing the attribute set of the Type, unless the Type represents a generic type parameter, in which case the value is unspecified.

Implements

_Type::Attributes

If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this property returns the attributes of the generic type definition. For example, the attributes returned for MyGenericClass<int> (MyGenericClass(Of Integer) in Visual Basic) are the attributes of MyGenericClass<T> (MyGenericClass(Of T) in Visual Basic).

If the current Type represents a generic type parameter — that is, if the IsGenericParameter property returns true — the TypeAttributes value returned by this property is unspecified.

The following example shows the use of the Type.Attributes property.


#using <System.DLL>

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
ref class Sample
{
private:
   void Method( Type^ t )
   {
      if ( (t->Attributes & TypeAttributes::ClassSemanticsMask) == TypeAttributes::Interface )
            Console::WriteLine(  "t is an interface." );

      if ( (t->Attributes & TypeAttributes::Public) != (TypeAttributes)0 )
            Console::WriteLine(  "t is public." );
   }

};
