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)

property bool IsAnsiClass {
	virtual bool get() sealed;

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 namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
public ref class MyClass
   String^ myField;

      myField =  "A sample protected field";

int main()
      MyClass^ myObject = gcnew MyClass;

      // Get the type of the 'MyClass'.
      Type^ myType = MyClass::typeid;

      // Get the field information and the attributes associated with MyClass.
      FieldInfo^ myFieldInfo = myType->GetField( "myField", static_cast<BindingFlags>(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 );
