PropertyInfo.GetSetMethod PropertyInfo.GetSetMethod PropertyInfo.GetSetMethod PropertyInfo.GetSetMethod Method

Definition

Returns a MethodInfo representing the set accessor for this property.

Overloads

GetSetMethod(Boolean) GetSetMethod(Boolean) GetSetMethod(Boolean) GetSetMethod(Boolean)

When overridden in a derived class, returns the set accessor for this property.

GetSetMethod() GetSetMethod() GetSetMethod() GetSetMethod()

Returns the public set accessor for this property.

GetSetMethod(Boolean) GetSetMethod(Boolean) GetSetMethod(Boolean) GetSetMethod(Boolean)

When overridden in a derived class, returns the set accessor for this property.

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

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

Returns

This property's Set method, or null, as shown in the following table.

Value Condition
The Set method for this property. The set accessor is public. -or- nonPublic is true and the set accessor is non-public.
nullnonPublic is true, but the property is read-only. -or- nonPublic is false and the set accessor is non-public. -or- There is no set accessor.
Implements
Exceptions

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

The following example displays the set accessor for the specified property.

Remarks

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

Security

GetSetMethod() GetSetMethod() GetSetMethod() GetSetMethod()

Returns the public set accessor for this property.

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

The MethodInfo object representing the Set method for this property if the set accessor is public, or null if the set accessor is not public.

Remarks

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

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