Examples

The following example uses the IsPublic property to display a message that indicates whether the specified method is public.

int main()
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nReflection.MethodBase" );
   
   //Get the MethodBase of a method.
   //Get the type
   Type^ MyType = Type::GetType( "System.MulticastDelegate" );
   
   //Get and display the method
   MethodBase^ Mymethodbase = MyType->GetMethod( "RemoveImpl", static_cast<BindingFlags>(BindingFlags::NonPublic | BindingFlags::Instance) );
   Console::Write( "\nMymethodbase = {0}", Mymethodbase );
   bool Myispublic = Mymethodbase->IsPublic;
   if ( Myispublic )
      Console::Write( "\nMymethodbase is a public method" );
   else
      Console::Write( "\nMymethodbase is not a public method" );

   return 0;
}

Remarks

To get the MethodBase, first get the type. From the type, get the method. From the method, get the MethodBase. If the MethodBase or constructor is other than public, it is protected and cannot be readily accessed. To access a non-public method, set the BindingFlags mask to NonPublic in GetMethod.
