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.

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 Example
    public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
        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);

        outputBlock.Text += "\nChecking for the AnsiClass attribute for a field.\n";
        // Get and display the name, field, and the AnsiClass attribute.
        outputBlock.Text += String.Format("Name of Class: {0} \nIsAnsiClass = {1}\n", 
           myType.FullName, myType.IsAnsiClass);
