[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

When overridden in a derived class, implements the HasElementType property and determines 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)

protected abstract bool HasElementTypeImpl()

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