XamlMember.LookupType Method

Returns the XamlType of the type that is used by the member. See Remarks.

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

protected virtual XamlType LookupType()

Return Value

Type: System.Xaml.XamlType
The XamlType of the type that is used by the member. See Remarks.

This method is invoked when a caller gets a value from Type. Override this method if you want Type to return a value that differs from the value that is enabled by default internal reflection, and if you are also providing custom XamlMemberInvoker information.

The default implementation uses different code paths and conceptual meanings for the returned XamlType that is based on whether this XamlMember represents a property, method, or event.

  • For a property, the returned XamlType is the type that sets the property or is returned by the property.

  • For an event, the returned XamlType is the required event handler type (a delegate in a CLR implementation).

  • For a method, XamlType is the return type.

In each case, XAML schema context is used to evaluate the XAML type from the underlying system type.

This method is invoked when a caller gets a value from Type. Override this method if you want to report uniform results for an entire XamlMember derived class, or if you have specialized metadata available to determine this on a per-case basis.
