GetNestedType(String)

Provides COM objects with version-independent access to the GetNestedType(String) method.

public:
 Type ^ GetNestedType(System::String ^ name);
public Type GetNestedType (string name);
abstract member GetNestedType : string -> Type
Public Function GetNestedType (name As String) As Type

Parameters

name
String

The string containing the name of the nested type to get.

Returns

A Type object representing the public nested type with the specified name, if found; otherwise, null.

Remarks

This method is for access to managed classes from unmanaged code, and should not be called from managed code.

The Type.GetNestedType method searches for the public nested type with the specified name.

GetNestedType(String, BindingFlags)

Provides COM objects with version-independent access to the GetNestedType(String, BindingFlags) method.

public:
 Type ^ GetNestedType(System::String ^ name, System::Reflection::BindingFlags bindingAttr);
public Type GetNestedType (string name, System.Reflection.BindingFlags bindingAttr);
abstract member GetNestedType : string * System.Reflection.BindingFlags -> Type
Public Function GetNestedType (name As String, bindingAttr As BindingFlags) As Type

Parameters

name
String

The string containing the name of the nested type to get.

bindingAttr
BindingFlags

A bitmask comprised of one or more BindingFlags that specify how the search is conducted.

-or-

Zero, to return null.

Returns

A Type object representing the nested type that matches the specified requirements, if found; otherwise, null.
