Module Property

Type.Module Property

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

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

public abstract Module Module { get; }

Property Value

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

Implements

_Type.Module

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 System;

namespace MyNamespace
{
    class MyClass
    {
    }
}

public class Example
{
    public static void Main()
    {
         Type myType = typeof(MyNamespace.MyClass);
         Console.WriteLine("Displaying information about {0}:", myType); 
         // Get the namespace of the myClass class.
         Console.WriteLine("   Namespace: {0}.", myType.Namespace);
         // Get the name of the module.
         Console.WriteLine("   Module: {0}.", myType.Module);
         // Get the fully qualified type name.
         Console.WriteLine("   Fully qualified name: {0}.", myType.ToString());
    }
}
// The example displays the following output: 
//    Displaying information about MyNamespace.MyClass: 
//       Namespace: MyNamespace. 
//       Module: type_tostring.exe. 
//       Fully qualified name: MyNamespace.MyClass.
