Type.IsPrimitiveImpl Method

When overridden in a derived class, implements the IsPrimitive property and determines whether the Type is one of the primitive types.

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

'Declaration
Protected MustOverride Function IsPrimitiveImpl As Boolean

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the Type is one of the primitive types; otherwise, false.

The primitive types are Boolean, Byte, SByte, Int16, UInt16, Int32, UInt32, Int64, UInt64, Char, Double, and Single.

The following example determines whether the given type is a primitive type and displays the result.

    Public myElementType As String = Nothing 
    Private myType As Type = Nothing
