Gets a MemberTypes value indicating that this member is a field.

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

public override MemberTypes MemberType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection.MemberTypes
A MemberTypes value indicating that this member is a field.

Implements

_FieldInfo.MemberType
_MemberInfo.MemberType

This property overrides MemberType. Therefore, when you examine a set of MemberInfo objects — for example, the array returned by GetMembers — the MemberType property returns MemberTypes.Field only when a given member is a field.

The following example determines whether the specified member is a field and displays the result.

using System;
using System.Reflection;

// Make a field. 
public class Myfield
{
    private string field = "a private field";
    public string Field
    {
        get{return field;}
    }
}

public class Myfieldinfo
{
    public static int Main()
    {
        Console.WriteLine ("\nReflection.FieldInfo");
        Myfield Myfield = new Myfield();

        // Get the Type and FieldInfo.
        Type MyType = typeof(Myfield);
        FieldInfo Myfieldinfo = MyType.GetField("field", BindingFlags.NonPublic|BindingFlags.Instance);

        // Get and display the MemberType.
        Console.Write ("\n{0}.", MyType.FullName);
        Console.Write ("{0} - ", Myfieldinfo.Name);
        Console.Write ("{0};", Myfield.Field);
        MemberTypes Mymembertypes = Myfieldinfo.MemberType;
        Console.Write("MemberType is a {0}.", Mymembertypes.ToString());
        return 0;
    }
}

This code produces the following output:

Reflection.FieldInfo

Myfield.field - a private field; MemberType is a Field
