Type.IsContextfulImpl Method ()

 

Implements the IsContextful property and determines whether the Type can be hosted in a context.

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

Protected Overridable Function IsContextfulImpl As Boolean

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the Type can be hosted in a context; otherwise, false.

This method can be overridden by a derived class.

A context intercepts calls to the class members and enforce policies that are applied to the class, such as synchronization.

The following example demonstrates a use of the IsContextfulImpl method.

Public Class MyTypeDelegatorClass
    Inherits TypeDelegator
    Public myElementType As String = Nothing
    Private myType As Type = Nothing

        Me.myType = myType
    End Sub 'NewNew

    Protected Overrides Function IsContextfulImpl() As Boolean
        ' Check whether the type is contextful.
        If myType.IsContextful Then
            myElementType = " is contextful "
            Return True
        End If
        Return False
    End Function 'IsContextfulImpl
