Type.IsNestedPublic Property

Gets a value indicating whether a class is nested and declared public.

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

public bool IsNestedPublic { get; }
/** @property */
public final boolean get_IsNestedPublic ()

public final function get IsNestedPublic () : boolean

Not applicable.

Property Value

true if the class is nested and declared public; otherwise, false.

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

TypeAttributes.VisibilityMask selects the visibility attributes.

The following example declares a public nested class and displays its IsNestedPublic property value.

using System;
// Enclose a class.
public class MyClassA
{
    // Public nested class.
    public class MyClassB
    {
    }
    public static void Main(string[] args)
    {	
        // Get the type of the nested class.
        Type myTypeB = typeof(MyClassA.MyClassB);
        // Get the IsNestedPublic property of the nested class.
        Console.WriteLine("\nThe IsNestedPublic property value of the nested class is {0}.", myTypeB.IsNestedPublic.ToString());			
    }
}

import System.*;

// Enclose a class.
public class MyClassA
{
    // Public nested class.
    public class MyClassB
    {
    } //MyClassB

    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
        // Get the type of the nested class.
        Type myTypeB = MyClassA.MyClassB.class.ToType();
        // Get the IsNestedPublic property of the nested class.
        Console.WriteLine("\nThe IsNestedPublic property value of the nested" 
            + " class is {0}.", System.Convert.ToString(
            myTypeB.get_IsNestedPublic()));
    } //main
} //MyClassA
