XamlType.LookupIsPublic Method


Returns a value that indicates whether this XamlType represents a public type in the relevant type system.

 virtual bool LookupIsPublic();
protected virtual bool LookupIsPublic ();
abstract member LookupIsPublic : unit -> bool
override this.LookupIsPublic : unit -> bool
Protected Overridable Function LookupIsPublic () As Boolean



true if this XamlType represents a public type; otherwise, false.


This method can be invoked by calls to IsPublic.

The default implementation uses CLR reflection against a non-null UnderlyingType. For a null UnderlyingType, it returns true.

Override this method if you want IsPublic to use different logic.


LookupIsPublic is virtual, and therefore, can be overridden. The override has the potential (whether for malicious purposes or otherwise) to change the reported access information about a XAML type so that it no longer aligns in an expected way with the type system or access information of its underlying CLR type. For any security-critical checks of assignment operations and access, use the underlying CLR type instead.
