Definition

Gets the type that declares the method, which is always null for dynamic methods.

public:
 virtual property Type ^ DeclaringType { Type ^ get(); };
public override Type? DeclaringType { get; }

member this.DeclaringType : Type
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property DeclaringType As Type

Property Value

Type

Always null.

Examples

The following code example displays the declaring type of a dynamic method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DynamicMethod class.

// Display the declaring type, which is always null for dynamic
// methods.
if (hello->DeclaringType == nullptr)
{
    Console::WriteLine("\r\nDeclaringType is always null for dynamic methods.");
}
else
{
    Console::WriteLine("DeclaringType: {0}", hello->DeclaringType);
}
// Display the declaring type, which is always null for dynamic
// methods.
if (hello.DeclaringType == null)
{
    Console.WriteLine("\r\nDeclaringType is always null for dynamic methods.");
}
else
{
    Console.WriteLine("DeclaringType: {0}", hello.DeclaringType);
}
' Display the declaring type, which is always Nothing for dynamic
' methods.
If hello.DeclaringType Is Nothing Then
    Console.WriteLine(vbCrLf & "DeclaringType is always Nothing for dynamic methods.")
Else
    Console.WriteLine("DeclaringType: {0}", hello.DeclaringType)
End If

Remarks

This property always returns null for dynamic methods. Even when a dynamic method is logically associated with a type, it is not declared by the type.
