Type.IsNestedAssembly Property

Gets a value indicating whether the Type is nested and visible only within its own assembly.

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

Public ReadOnly Property IsNestedAssembly As Boolean
Dim instance As Type
Dim value As Boolean

value = instance.IsNestedAssembly

/** @property */
public final boolean get_IsNestedAssembly ()

public final function get IsNestedAssembly () : boolean

Property Value

true if the Type is nested and visible only within its own assembly; otherwise, false.

If the current Type represents a type parameter of a generic type, this property always returns false.

TypeAttributes.VisibilityMask selects the visibility attributes.

The following example declares a nested class with visibility in its own assembly, and displays its IsNestedAssembly property value.

Imports System
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic
' Nest a class.
Class MyClassA
    Friend Class MyClassB
    End Class 'MyClassB
End Class 'MyClassA
Class MyTestClass
    Public Shared Sub Main()
        ' Get the type of the nested class.
        Dim myTypeB As Type = GetType(MyClassA.MyClassB)
        ' Get the IsNestedAssembly property  of the nested class.
        Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.Cr + "The IsNestedAssembly property value of MyClassB is {0}.", myTypeB.IsNestedAssembly.ToString())
    End Sub 'Main
End Class 'MyTestClass

import System.*;

// Nest a class.
class MyClassA
    class MyClassB
    } //MyClassB
} //MyClassA

class MyTestClass
    public static void main(String[] args)
        // Get the type of the nested class.
        Type myTypeB = MyClassA.MyClassB.class.ToType();

        // Get the IsNestedAssembly property  of the nested class.
        Console.WriteLine("\nThe IsNestedAssembly property value of "
            +"MyClassB is {0}.",System.Convert.ToString(
    } //main
} //MyTestClass
