Type.MemberType Property

 

Gets a MemberTypes value indicating that this member is a type or a nested type.

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

public override MemberTypes MemberType { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection.MemberTypes

A MemberTypes value indicating that this member is a type or a nested type.

This property overrides MemberInfo.MemberType. Therefore, when you examine a set of MemberInfo objects—for example, the array returned by GetMembers—the MemberType property returns MemberTypes.NestedType when a given member is a nested type.

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 returnsMemberTypes.TypeInfo.

The following code example shows the MemberType field as a parameter to the GetMember method:

MemberInfo[] others = t.GetMember(mi.Name, mi.MemberType, BindingFlags.Public |
BindingFlags.Static | BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Instance);
