Type::Module Property

Gets the module (the DLL) in which the current Type is defined.

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

virtual property Module^ Module {
	Module^ get () abstract;

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection::Module
The module in which the current Type is defined.



If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this property returns the module in which the generic type definition was defined. For example, if you create an instance of MyGenericStack<int>, the Module property for the constructed type returns the module in which MyGenericStack<T> is defined.

Similarly, if the current Type represents a generic parameter T, this property returns the assembly that contains the generic type that defines T.

This following example demonstrates a use of the Namespace and Module properties and the ToString method of Type.

using namespace System;

namespace MyNamespace
   ref class MyClass{};


int main()
      Type^ myType = MyNamespace::MyClass::typeid;
      Console::WriteLine( "\nPrinting the details of {0}.\n", myType );

      // Get the namespace of the class MyClass.
      Console::WriteLine( "Namespace: {0}.", myType->Namespace );

      // Get the name of the module.
      Console::WriteLine( "Module: {0}.", myType->Module );

      // Get the fully qualified common language runtime namespace.
      Console::WriteLine( "Fully qualified type: {0}.", myType );
   catch ( Exception^ e ) 
      Console::WriteLine( "Exception: {0}", e->Message );
