Type.IsTypeDefinition Property

public virtual bool IsTypeDefinition { get; }
member this.IsTypeDefinition : bool
Public Overridable ReadOnly Property IsTypeDefinition As Boolean

Property Value


true if the current Type is a type definition; otherwise, false.


A Type instance is a type definition if it represents the type directly defined in assembly, in contrast to types that are constructed on demand based on other types. For example, a primitive type, class, structure, or generic type definition is a type definition, but an array, reference, pointer, or instantiated generic type isn't.
