Returns

The defined nested type.

Exceptions

The nested attribute is not specified.

-or-

This type is sealed.

-or-

This type is an array.

-or-

This type is an interface, but the nested type is not an interface.

-or-

The length of name is zero or greater than 1023.

-or-

This operation would create a type with a duplicate FullName in the current assembly.

name is null.

-or-

An element of the interfaces array is null.

Remarks

This method can be used to create nested types even after the CreateType method has been called on the enclosing type.

The nested type needs to be complete before you can reflect on it using GetMembers, GetNestedType, or GetNestedTypes.

See the description of CreateType for the order in which nested types and nesting types should be completed.

A duplicate name is not necessarily created if name is identical to the name of a previously defined type or nested type. To be duplicates, the full names must be the same, including the namespace and all nesting types.
