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

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

abstract Module : Module with 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.
