Returns a MethodInfo representing the get accessor for this property.

Overload List

Returns the public get accessor for this property.

Supported by the .NET Compact Framework.

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

When overridden in a derived class, returns the public or non-public get accessor for this property.

Supported by the .NET Compact Framework.

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

Example

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