Type.IsImport Property


Gets a value indicating whether the Type has a ComImportAttribute attribute applied, indicating that it was imported from a COM type library.

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

public bool IsImport { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the Type has a ComImportAttribute; otherwise, false.



If the current Type represents a constructed generic type, this property applies to the generic type definition from which the type was constructed. For example, if the current Type represents MyGenericType<int> (MyGenericType(Of Integer) in Visual Basic), the value of this property is determined by MyGenericType<T>.

If the current Type represents a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or generic method, this property always returns false.
