Overload List

Returns an array whose elements reflect the public get, set, and other accessors of the property reflected by the current instance.

Supported by the .NET Compact Framework.

[Visual Basic] Overloads Public Function GetAccessors() As MethodInfo()
[C#] public MethodInfo[] GetAccessors();
[C++] public: MethodInfo* GetAccessors() [];
[JScript] public function GetAccessors() : MethodInfo[];

Returns an array whose elements reflect the public and, if specified, non-public get, set, and other accessors of the property reflected by the current instance.

Supported by the .NET Compact Framework.

[Visual Basic] Overloads Public MustOverride Function GetAccessors(Boolean) As MethodInfo()
[C#] public abstract MethodInfo[] GetAccessors(bool);
[C++] public: virtual MethodInfo* GetAccessors(bool) [] = 0;
[JScript] public abstract function GetAccessors(Boolean) : MethodInfo[];

Example

The following example displays the accessors of the specified property.
