ParameterInfo.ParameterType ParameterInfo.ParameterType ParameterInfo.ParameterType ParameterInfo.ParameterType Property

Definition

Gets the Type of this parameter.

public:
 virtual property Type ^ ParameterType { Type ^ get(); };
public virtual Type ParameterType { get; }
member this.ParameterType : Type
Public Overridable ReadOnly Property ParameterType As Type

Property Value

The Type object that represents the Type of this parameter.

Examples

The following example shows how to get ParameterInfo objects for the parameters of a method, and then use the ParameterType property to display the type of each parameter.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
using namespace System::Runtime::InteropServices;
public ref class parminfo
{
public:
   static void mymethod( int int1m, [Out]interior_ptr<String^> str2m, interior_ptr<String^> str3m )
   {
       *str2m = "in mymethod";
   }

};

int main()
{
   Console::WriteLine( "\nReflection.Parameterinfo" );
   
   //Get the ParameterInfo parameter of a function.
   //Get the type.
   Type^ Mytype = Type::GetType( "parminfo" );
   
   //Get and display the method.
   MethodBase^ Mymethodbase = Mytype->GetMethod( "mymethod" );
   Console::Write( "\nMymethodbase = {0}", Mymethodbase );
   
   //Get the ParameterInfo array.
   array<ParameterInfo^>^Myarray = Mymethodbase->GetParameters();
   
   //Get and display the ParameterInfo of each parameter.
   System::Collections::IEnumerator^ enum0 = Myarray->GetEnumerator();
   while ( enum0->MoveNext() )
   {
      ParameterInfo^ Myparam = safe_cast<ParameterInfo^>(enum0->Current);
      Console::Write( "\nFor parameter # {0}, the ParameterType is - {1}", Myparam->Position, Myparam->ParameterType );
   }

   return 0;
}

Remarks

This method depends on an optional metadata and might not be available in all compilers.

To get the ParameterInfo array, first get the method or the constructor and then call MethodBase.GetParameters.
