Type.IsNestedPublic Property

 

Gets a value indicating whether a class is nested and declared public.

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

public bool IsNestedPublic { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the class is nested and declared public; 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 creates an outer class with a number of nested classes that have various types of visibility. It then retrieves the value of a number of visibility-related Type properties for the parent type and each of its nested types.

using System;

// Create a class with a number of nested classes.
public class OuterClass
{
    private class PrivateClass
    {}

    protected class ProtectedClass
    {}

    internal class InternalClass
    {}

    protected internal class ProtectedInternalClass
    {}

    public class PublicClass
    {}

    public static void Main()
    {
        // Create an array of Type objects for all the classes.
        Type[] types = { typeof(OuterClass),
                         typeof(OuterClass.PublicClass),
                         typeof(OuterClass.PrivateClass),
                         typeof(OuterClass.ProtectedClass),
                         typeof(OuterClass.InternalClass),
                         typeof(OuterClass.ProtectedInternalClass) };
        // Display the property values of each nested class.
        foreach (var type in types) {
           Console.WriteLine("\n{0} property values:", type.Name);
           Console.WriteLine("   Public Class: {0}", type.IsPublic);
           Console.WriteLine("   Not a Public Class: {0}", type.IsNotPublic);
           Console.WriteLine("   Nested Class: {0}", type.IsNested);
           Console.WriteLine("   Nested Private Class: {0}", type.IsNestedPrivate);
           Console.WriteLine("   Nested Internal Class: {0}", type.IsNestedAssembly);
           Console.WriteLine("   Nested Protected Class: {0}", type.IsNestedFamily);
           Console.WriteLine("   Nested Family Or Assembly Class: {0}", type.IsNestedFamORAssem);
           Console.WriteLine("   Nested Family And Assembly Class: {0}", type.IsNestedFamANDAssem);
           Console.WriteLine("   Nested Public Class: {0}", type.IsNestedPublic);
        }
    }
}
