TypeBuilder::IsGenericTypeDefinition Property

Gets a value indicating whether the current TypeBuilder represents a generic type definition from which other generic types can be constructed.

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

public:
virtual property bool IsGenericTypeDefinition {
	bool get () override;
}

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean
true if this TypeBuilder object represents a generic type definition; otherwise, false.

A TypeBuilder object represents a generic type definition if the DefineGenericParameters method has been used to give it generic type parameters. An instance of the TypeBuilder class that is generic is always a generic type definition.

A TypeBuilder can be used to build generic type definitions, but not constructed generic types. To get a constructed generic type, call the MakeGenericType method on a TypeBuilder that represents a generic type definition.

For more information on generic types in reflection and a list of the invariant conditions for terms used in generic reflection, see the Type::IsGenericType property.
