PropertyInfo.GetGetMethod Method

Definition

Returns a MethodInfo representing the get accessor for this property.

Overloads

GetGetMethod()

Returns the public get accessor for this property.

GetGetMethod(Boolean)

When overridden in a derived class, returns the public or non-public get accessor for this property.

GetGetMethod()

Returns the public get accessor for this property.

public:
 virtual System::Reflection::MethodInfo ^ GetGetMethod();
public System.Reflection.MethodInfo GetGetMethod ();
abstract member GetGetMethod : unit -> System.Reflection.MethodInfo
override this.GetGetMethod : unit -> System.Reflection.MethodInfo
Public Function GetGetMethod () As MethodInfo

Returns

A MethodInfo object representing the public get accessor for this property, or null if the get accessor is non-public or does not exist.

Implements

Remarks

This is a convenience method that provides an implementation for the abstract GetGetMethod method with the nonPublic parameter set to false.

To use the GetGetMethod method, first get the class Type. From the Type, get the PropertyInfo. From the PropertyInfo, use the GetGetMethod method.

Security

ReflectionPermission
when invoked late-bound through mechanisms such as InvokeMember(String, BindingFlags, Binder, Object, Object[], ParameterModifier[], CultureInfo, String[]). Associated enumeration: MemberAccess.

GetGetMethod(Boolean)

When overridden in a derived class, returns the public or non-public get accessor for this property.

public:
 abstract System::Reflection::MethodInfo ^ GetGetMethod(bool nonPublic);
public abstract System.Reflection.MethodInfo GetGetMethod (bool nonPublic);
abstract member GetGetMethod : bool -> System.Reflection.MethodInfo
Public MustOverride Function GetGetMethod (nonPublic As Boolean) As MethodInfo

Parameters

nonPublic
Boolean

Indicates whether a non-public get accessor should be returned. true if a non-public accessor is to be returned; otherwise, false.

Returns

A MethodInfo object representing the get accessor for this property, if nonPublic is true. Returns null if nonPublic is false and the get accessor is non-public, or if nonPublic is true but no get accessors exist.

Implements

Exceptions

The requested method is non-public and the caller does not have ReflectionPermission to reflect on this non-public method.

Examples

The following example displays the public or non-public get accessor for the specified property.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;

// Define a property.
public ref class Myproperty

private:
   String^ caption;

public:

      void set( String^ value )

         {
            caption = value;

Remarks

This property is the MethodInfo representing the get accessor.

To use the GetGetMethod method, first get the class Type. From the Type, get the PropertyInfo. From the PropertyInfo, use the GetGetMethod method.
