XamlType.GetMember Method

Returns a XamlMember for a specific named member from this XamlType.

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

public XamlMember GetMember(
	string name


Type: System.String
The name of the member to get (as a string).

Return Value

Type: System.Xaml.XamlMember
The XamlMember information for the member, if such a member was found; otherwise, null.

The value for name is expected to be unqualified. Type-qualified names that indicate an attached member should be submitted to GetAttachableMember instead. Prefixed member names should not be used; a prefix is situational to a usage and the XAML type system cannot know the context of such a usage and how the prefix is mapped.

Calls to this method can invoke LookupMember overrides on XamlType derived classes.

Security noteSecurity Note

LookupMember is virtual, and therefore, can be overridden. The override has the potential (whether for malicious purposes or otherwise) to change the reported members of a XAML type so that they no longer align in an expected way with the TypeDescriptor Get* information about the underlying CLR type. For any security-critical checks of member reporting, use the underlying CLR type instead.
