Type.IsAnsiClass Property

Gets a value indicating whether the string format attribute AnsiClass is selected for the Type.

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

public bool IsAnsiClass { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the string format attribute AnsiClass is selected for the Type; otherwise, false.

Implements

_Type.IsAnsiClass

The StringFormatMask selects the string format attributes. The string format attributes enhance interoperability by defining how strings should be interpreted.

If the current Type represents a generic type, this property pertains to the generic type definition from which the type was constructed. For example, if the current Type represents MyGenericType<int> (MyGenericType(Of Integer) in Visual Basic), the value of this property is determined by MyGenericType<T>.

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

The following example gets the field information and checks for the AnsiClass attribute.

using System;
using System.Reflection;
public class MyClass
{
    protected string myField = "A sample protected field." ;
}
public class MyType_IsAnsiClass
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        try
        {
            MyClass myObject = new MyClass();
            // Get the type of the 'MyClass'.
            Type myType = typeof(MyClass);
            // Get the field information and the attributes associated with MyClass.
            FieldInfo myFieldInfo = myType.GetField("myField", BindingFlags.NonPublic|BindingFlags.Instance);
            Console.WriteLine( "\nChecking for the AnsiClass attribute for a field.\n"); 
            // Get and display the name, field, and the AnsiClass attribute.
            Console.WriteLine("Name of Class: {0} \nValue of Field: {1} \nIsAnsiClass = {2}", myType.FullName, myFieldInfo.GetValue(myObject), myType.IsAnsiClass);
        }
        catch(Exception e)
        {
            Console.WriteLine("Exception: {0}",e.Message);
        }
    }
}
