PropertyInfo.GetIndexParameters PropertyInfo.GetIndexParameters PropertyInfo.GetIndexParameters PropertyInfo.GetIndexParameters Method

Definition

When overridden in a derived class, returns an array of all the index parameters for the property.

public:
 abstract cli::array <System::Reflection::ParameterInfo ^> ^ GetIndexParameters();
public abstract System.Reflection.ParameterInfo[] GetIndexParameters ();
abstract member GetIndexParameters : unit -> System.Reflection.ParameterInfo[]
Public MustOverride Function GetIndexParameters () As ParameterInfo()

Returns

An array of type ParameterInfo containing the parameters for the indexes. If the property is not indexed, the array has 0 (zero) elements.

The following example displays the index parameters of the specified property.

Remarks

Extract any required parameter information from the returned array.

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