Examples

This example lists the Name and DeclaringType property of each member of the specified class.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;

void main()
{
   // Get the Type and MemberInfo.
   Type^ t = Type::GetType("System.Empty");
   array<MemberInfo^>^ memberArray = t->GetMembers();
   
   // Get and display the type that declares the member.
   Console::WriteLine("There are {0} members in {1}", 
                      memberArray->Length, t->FullName);
   for each (MemberInfo^ member in memberArray) {
      Console::WriteLine("Member {0} declared by {1}", 
                        member->Name, member->DeclaringType);
   }
}
// The example displays the following output:
//       There are 6 members in System.Empty
//       Member ToString declared by System.Empty
//       Member GetObjectData declared by System.Empty
//       Member Equals declared by System.Object
//       Member GetHashCode declared by System.Object
//       Member GetType declared by System.Object
//       Member Value declared by System.Empty

Class Example
    Public Shared Sub Main()
        ' Get the Type and MemberInfo.
        Dim t As Type = Type.GetType("System.Empty")
        Dim memberArray As MemberInfo() = t.GetMembers()

        ' Get and display the type that declares the member.
        Console.WriteLine("There are {0} members in {1}", 
                          memberArray.Length, t.FullName)

        For Each member In memberArray
            Console.WriteLine("Member {0} declared by {1}", 
                              member.Name, member.DeclaringType)
        Next 
    End Sub
End Class
' The example displays the following output:
'       There are 6 members in System.Empty
'       Member ToString declared by System.Empty
'       Member GetObjectData declared by System.Empty
'       Member Equals declared by System.Object
'       Member GetHashCode declared by System.Object
'       Member GetType declared by System.Object
'       Member Value declared by System.Empty

Remarks

Only the simple name of the member is returned, not the fully qualified name.

To get the Name property, get the class Type. From the Type, get the MemberInfo array. From a MemberInfo element of the array, obtain the Name property.
