Type.IsMarshalByRefImpl Method ()

 

Implements the IsMarshalByRef property and determines whether the Type is marshaled by reference.

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

Protected Overridable Function IsMarshalByRefImpl As Boolean

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the Type is marshaled by reference; otherwise, false.

This method can be overridden by a derived class.

The following example determines whether the given type is marshaled by reference and displays the result.
