Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

Public ReadOnly Property IsNestedAssembly As Boolean

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the Type is nested and visible only within its own assembly; 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 nested class with visibility in its own assembly, and displays its IsNestedAssembly property value.

' Nest a class.
Class MyClassA
   Friend Class MyClassB
   End Class 'MyClassB
End Class 'MyClassA
Class Example
   Public Shared Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)
      ' Get the type of the nested class.
      Dim myTypeB As Type = GetType(MyClassA.MyClassB)
      ' Get the IsNestedAssembly property  of the nested class.
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(ControlChars.Cr + "The IsNestedAssembly property value of MyClassB is {0}.", myTypeB.IsNestedAssembly.ToString()) & vbCrLf
   End Sub 'Main
End Class 'MyTestClass
