Gets a value indicating whether the Type is a value type.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Value types are types that are represented as sequences of bits; value types are not classes or interfaces. Value types are referred to as "structs" in some programming languages. Enums are a special case of value types.
This property returns false for the ValueType class, because ValueType is not a value type itself. It is the base class for all value types, and therefore any value type can be assigned to it. This would not be possible if ValueType itself was a value type. Value types are boxed when they are assigned to a field of type ValueType.
This property is read-only.
