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

public abstract MethodInfo GetGetMethod(
	bool nonPublic
)

Parameters

nonPublic
Type: System.Boolean

true to return a non-public accessor; otherwise, false.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.MethodInfo
The get accessor for this property, if nonPublic is true. Returns null if nonPublic is false and the get accessor is non-public, or if nonPublic is true but no get accessor exists.

Implements

_PropertyInfo.GetGetMethod(Boolean)

ExceptionCondition
SecurityException

The requested method is non-public and the caller does not have ReflectionPermission to reflect on this non-public method.

This method returns the MethodInfo representing the get accessor.

To use the GetGetMethod method, first get the class Type. From the Type, get the PropertyInfo. From the PropertyInfo, use the GetGetMethod method.

The following example displays the public or non-public get accessor for the specified property.

using System;
using System.Reflection;

// Define a property. 
public class Myproperty   
{
    private string caption = "A Default caption";
    public string Caption
    {
        get{return caption;}
        set {if(caption!=value) {caption = value;}
        }
    }
}

class Mypropertyinfo
{
    public static int Main()
    {
        Console.WriteLine ("\nReflection.PropertyInfo");

        // Get the type and PropertyInfo for two separate properties.
        Type MyTypea = Type.GetType("Myproperty");
        PropertyInfo Mypropertyinfoa = MyTypea.GetProperty("Caption");
        Type MyTypeb = Type.GetType("System.Reflection.MethodInfo");
        PropertyInfo Mypropertyinfob = MyTypeb.GetProperty("MemberType");

        // Get and display the GetGetMethod method for each property.
        MethodInfo Mygetmethodinfoa = Mypropertyinfoa.GetGetMethod();
        Console.Write ("\nGetAccessor for " + Mypropertyinfoa.Name
            + " returns a " + Mygetmethodinfoa.ReturnType);
        MethodInfo Mygetmethodinfob = Mypropertyinfob.GetGetMethod();
        Console.Write ("\nGetAccessor for " + Mypropertyinfob.Name
            + " returns a " + Mygetmethodinfob.ReturnType);

        // Display the GetGetMethod without using the MethodInfo.
        Console.Write ("\n" + MyTypea.FullName + "." + Mypropertyinfoa.Name
            + " GetGetMethod - " + Mypropertyinfoa.GetGetMethod());
        Console.Write ("\n" + MyTypeb.FullName + "." + Mypropertyinfob.Name
            + " GetGetMethod - " + Mypropertyinfob.GetGetMethod());
        return 0;
    }
}
