public override Type? ReflectedType { get; }
public override Type ReflectedType { get; }
member this.ReflectedType : Type

Property Value


The Type object through which this Type object was obtained.



This example displays the reflected type of a nested class.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;

public ref class MyClassA abstract
   ref class MyClassB abstract



int main()
   Console::WriteLine( "Reflected type of MyClassB is {0}", MyClassA::MyClassB::typeid->ReflectedType );
   //Outputs MyClassA, the enclosing type.
using System;
using System.Reflection;

public abstract class MyClassA

    public abstract class MyClassB

    public static void Main(string[] args)
        Console.WriteLine("Reflected type of MyClassB is {0}",
            typeof(MyClassB).ReflectedType); //outputs MyClassA, the enclosing class
Imports System.Reflection

Public MustInherit Class MyClassA

    Public MustInherit Class MyClassB

    End Class

    Public Shared Sub Main()
        Console.WriteLine("Reflected type of MyClassB is {0}", _
    'Outputs MyClassA, the enclosing type.
    End Sub
End Class


For Type objects, the value of this property is always the same as the value of the DeclaringType property.
