Type::Namespace Property

Gets the namespace of the Type.

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

public:
virtual property String^ Namespace {
	String^ get () abstract;
}

Property Value

Type: System::String
The namespace of the Type; nullptr if the current instance has no namespace or represents a generic parameter.

Implements

_Type::Namespace

A namespace is a logical design-time naming convenience, used mainly to define scope in an application and organize classes and other types in a single hierarchical structure. From the viewpoint of the runtime, there are no namespaces.

If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this property returns the namespace that contains the generic type definition. Similarly, if the current Type represents a generic parameter T, this property returns the namespace that contains the generic type definition that defines T.

If the current Type object represents a generic parameter, this property returns nullptr.

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()
{
   try
   {
      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 );
   }
}
