Gets a value indicating whether the Type is declared public.

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

abstract IsPublic : bool with get
override IsPublic : bool with get

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the Type is declared public and is not a nested type; otherwise, false.



Do not use with nested types; use IsNestedPublic instead.

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

TypeAttributes.VisibilityMask selects the visibility attributes.

The following example creates an instance of MyTestClass, checks for the IsPublic property, and displays the result.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

For nested classes, ignore the results of IsPublic and IsNotPublic and pay attention only to the results of IsNestedPublic and IsNestedPrivate.
