Type.FilterName Field

 

Represents the case-sensitive member filter used on names. This field is read-only.

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

Public Shared ReadOnly FilterName As MemberFilter

This field holds a reference to the delegate used by the FindMembers method. The method encapsulated by this delegate takes two parameters: the first is a MemberInfo object and the second is an Object. The method determines whether the MemberInfo object matches the criteria specified by the Object. The Object is assigned a string value, which may include a trailing "*" wildcard character. Only wildcard end string matching is supported.

For example, the Object may be assigned the value "Byte*". In that case, when the FilterName delegate is invoked, it will return true only if the method represented by the MemberInfo object has a name that begins with "Byte".

The following code example gets the methods associated with the user-defined Application type.

' Get the set of methods associated with the type
Dim mi As MemberInfo() = _
   GetType(Application).FindMembers( _
   MemberTypes.Constructor Or MemberTypes.Method, _
   BindingFlags.DeclaredOnly, _
   Type.FilterName, "*")
Console.WriteLine("Number of methods (includes constructors): " & _
   mi.Length.ToString())
