public abstract System.Reflection.MemberTypes MemberType { get; }
member this.MemberType : System.Reflection.MemberTypes
Public MustOverride ReadOnly Property MemberType As MemberTypes

Examples

The following example displays the member name and type of a specified class.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
int main()
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nReflection.MemberInfo" );
   
   // Get the Type and MemberInfo.
   Type^ MyType = Type::GetType( "System.Reflection.PropertyInfo" );
   array<MemberInfo^>^Mymemberinfoarray = MyType->GetMembers();
   
   // Get the MemberType method and display the elements.
   Console::Write( "\nThere are {0} members in ", Mymemberinfoarray->GetLength( 0 ) );
   Console::Write( "{0}.", MyType->FullName );
   for ( int counter = 0; counter < Mymemberinfoarray->Length; counter++ )
   {
      Console::Write( "\n{0}. {1} Member type - {2}", counter, Mymemberinfoarray[ counter ]->Name, Mymemberinfoarray[ counter ]->MemberType );

   }
   return 0;
}

using System;
using System.Reflection;
 
class Mymemberinfo
{
    public static int Main()
    {
        Console.WriteLine ("\nReflection.MemberInfo");
       
        // Get the Type and MemberInfo.
        Type MyType = Type.GetType("System.Reflection.PropertyInfo");
        MemberInfo[] Mymemberinfoarray = MyType.GetMembers();
  
        // Get the MemberType method and display the elements.
        Console.Write("\nThere are {0} members in ", Mymemberinfoarray.GetLength(0));
        Console.Write("{0}.", MyType.FullName);
  
        for (int counter = 0; counter < Mymemberinfoarray.Length; counter++)
        {
            Console.Write("\n" + counter + ". " 
                + Mymemberinfoarray[counter].Name
                + " Member type - " +
                Mymemberinfoarray[counter].MemberType.ToString());
        }
        return 0;
    }
}

        Console.Write(ControlChars.Cr + "There are {0} members in ", _
           Mymemberinfoarray.GetLength(0))
        Console.Write("{0}.", MyType.FullName)

        Dim counter As Integer
        For counter = 0 To Mymemberinfoarray.Length - 1
            Console.Write(ControlChars.CrLf + counter.ToString() + ". " _
               + Mymemberinfoarray(counter).Name _
               + " Member type - " _
               + Mymemberinfoarray(counter).MemberType.ToString())
        Next counter
        Return 0
    End Function
End Class

Remarks

This property is overridden in derived classes, and the override returns the appropriate member type. Therefore, when you examine a set of MemberInfo objects - for example, the array returned by GetMembers - the MemberType property can be used to determine the member type of any given member.

To get the MemberType property, get the class Type. From the Type, get the MethodInfo array. From the MethodInfo array, get the MemberTypes.
