Type.IsPrimitiveImpl Type.IsPrimitiveImpl Type.IsPrimitiveImpl Type.IsPrimitiveImpl Method

Definition

When overridden in a derived class, implements the IsPrimitive property and determines whether the Type is one of the primitive types.

protected:
 abstract bool IsPrimitiveImpl();
protected abstract bool IsPrimitiveImpl ();
abstract member IsPrimitiveImpl : unit -> bool
Protected MustOverride Function IsPrimitiveImpl () As Boolean

Returns

true if the Type is one of the primitive types; otherwise, false.

Examples

The following example determines whether the given type is a primitive type and displays the result.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
