Type.GetMember Method (String, BindingFlags)
Searches for the specified members, using the specified binding constraints.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
abstract GetMember : name:string * bindingAttr:BindingFlags -> MemberInfo override GetMember : name:string * bindingAttr:BindingFlags -> MemberInfo
- Type: System.String
The string containing the name of the members to get.
Return ValueType: System.Reflection.MemberInfo
An array of MemberInfo objects representing the public members with the specified name, if found; otherwise, an empty array.
name is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
This method can be overridden by a derived class.
Members include properties, methods, fields, events, and so on.
The GetMember method does not return members in a particular order, such as alphabetical or declaration order. Your code must not depend on the order in which members are returned, because that order varies.
The following BindingFlags filter flags can be used to define which members to include in the search:
You must specify either BindingFlags.Instance or BindingFlags.Static in order to get a return.
Specify BindingFlags.Public to include public members in the search.
Specify BindingFlags.NonPublic to include non-public members (that is, private, internal, and protected members) in the search.
Specify BindingFlags.FlattenHierarchy to include public and protected static members up the hierarchy; private static members in inherited classes are not included.
The following BindingFlags modifier flags can be used to change how the search works:
BindingFlags.IgnoreCase to ignore the case of name.
BindingFlags.DeclaredOnly to search only the members declared on the Type, not members that were simply inherited.
See System.Reflection.BindingFlags for more information.
To get the class initializer (.cctor) using this method overload, you must specify ".cctor" for name, and BindingFlags.Static | BindingFlags.NonPublic (BindingFlags.Static Or BindingFlags.NonPublic in Visual Basic) for bindingAttr. You can also get the class initializer using the TypeInitializer property.
If the current Type represents a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or generic method, this method searches the members of the class constraint, or the members of Object if there is no class constraint.
For generic methods, do not include the type arguments in name. For example, the C# code GetMember("MyMethod<int>") searches for a member with the text name "MyMethod<int>", rather than for a method named MyMethod that has one generic argument of type int.
