Type.HasElementType Property

Gets a value indicating whether the current Type encompasses or refers to another type; that is, whether the current Type is an array, a pointer, or is passed by reference.

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

public final function get HasElementType () : boolean

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the Type is an array, a pointer, or is passed by reference; otherwise, false.

Implements

_Type.HasElementType

For example, Type.GetType("Int32[]").HasElementType returns true, but Type.GetType("Int32").HasElementType returns false. HasElementType also returns true for "Int32*" and "Int32&".

If the current Type represents a generic type, or a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or generic method, this property always returns false.

The following example returns true or false depending on whether or not the object is an array, a reference type, or a pointer.
