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 ReadOnly Property IsAnsiClass As Boolean

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.

Imports System.Reflection

Public Class MyClass1
   Protected myField As String = "A sample protected field."
End Class 

Public Class Example
    Public Shared Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)

        Dim myObject As New MyClass1()
        ' Get the type of MyClass1.
        Dim myType As Type = GetType(MyClass1)
        ' Get the field information and the attributes associated with MyClass1.
        Dim myFieldInfo As FieldInfo = myType.GetField("myField", _
            BindingFlags.NonPublic Or BindingFlags.Instance)

        outputBlock.Text &= vbLf & "Checking for AnsiClass attribute for a field." & vbLf
        ' Get and display the name and the AnsiClass attribute.
        outputBlock.Text &= _
            String.Format("Name of Class: {0} " & vbLf & "IsAnsiClass = {1}" & vbLf, _
                myType.FullName, myType.IsAnsiClass)

    End Sub 
End Class
