Gets a value indicating whether the fields of the current type are laid out automatically by the common language runtime.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
This property is provided as a convenience. Alternatively, you can use the TypeAttributes.LayoutMaskenumeration value to select the type layout attributes, and then test whether TypeAttributes.AutoLayout is set. The TypeAttributes.AutoLayout,TypeAttributes.ExplicitLayout, and TypeAttributes.SequentialLayout enumeration values indicate the way the fields of the type are laid out in memory.
For dynamic types, you can specify TypeAttributes.AutoLayout when you create the type. In code, apply the StructLayoutAttribute attribute with the LayoutKind.Auto enumeration value to the type, to let the runtime determine the appropriate way to lay out the class.
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.
