XamlType.LookupIsPublic Method ()

.NET Framework (current version)

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on docs.microsoft.com to see the new experience.

Returns a value that indicates whether this XamlType represents a public type in the relevant type system.

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

protected virtual bool LookupIsPublic()

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if this XamlType represents a public type; otherwise, false.

This method can be invoked by calls to IsPublic.

The default implementation uses CLR reflection against a non-null UnderlyingType. For a null UnderlyingType, it returns true.

Override this method if you want IsPublic to use different logic.

System_CAPS_security Security Note

LookupIsPublic is virtual, and therefore, can be overridden. The override has the potential (whether for malicious purposes or otherwise) to change the reported access information about a XAML type so that it no longer aligns in an expected way with the type system or access information of its underlying CLR type. For any security-critical checks of assignment operations and access, use the underlying CLR type instead.
