_Type.IsNestedPublic

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 public nested class and displays its IsNestedPublic property value.

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