Gets a value indicating whether the Type is declared sealed.

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

public bool IsSealed { get; }

Implements

_Type.IsSealed

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

The following example creates an instance of a sealed class, checks for the IsSealed property, and displays the result.

using System;
namespace SystemType
{
    public class MyClass
    {
        // Declare MyTestClass as sealed. 
        sealed public class MyTestClass
        {
        }
        public static void Main(string []args)
        {
            try
            {
                bool myBool = false;
                MyTestClass myTestClassInstance = new MyTestClass();
                // Get the type of myTestClassInstance.
                Type myType = myTestClassInstance.GetType();
                // Get the IsSealed property of the myTestClassInstance.
                myBool = myType.IsSealed;
                Console.WriteLine("\nIs {0} sealed? {1}.", myType.FullName, myBool.ToString());
            }
            catch (Exception e)
            {
                Console.WriteLine("\nAn exception occurred: {0}",e.Message);
            }
        }
    }
}
