Type.HasElementTypeImpl Method

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 function HasElementTypeImpl() : boolean

Return Value

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

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

The following example defines the class MyTypeDelegator, which overrides the HasElementTypeImpl method. The main class checks for the HasElementType property and displays the element type.
