The Type type exposes the following members.

Properties

Name Description
Assembly Gets the Assembly in which the type is declared. For generic types, gets the Assembly in which the generic type is defined.
AssemblyQualifiedName Gets the assembly-qualified name of the Type, which includes the name of the assembly from which the Type was loaded.
Attributes Gets the attributes associated with the Type.
BaseType Gets the type from which the current Type directly inherits.
ContainsGenericParameters Gets a value indicating whether the current Type object has type parameters that have not been replaced by specific types.
CustomAttributes Gets a collection that contains this member's custom attributes. (Inherited from MemberInfo.)
DeclaringMethod Gets a MethodBase that represents the declaring method, if the current Type represents a type parameter of a generic method.
DeclaringType Gets the type that declares the current nested type or generic type parameter. (Overrides MemberInfo..::.DeclaringType.)
DefaultBinder Gets a reference to the default binder, which implements internal rules for selecting the appropriate members to be called by InvokeMember.
FullName Gets the fully qualified name of the Type, including the namespace of the Type but not the assembly.
GenericParameterAttributes Gets a combination of GenericParameterAttributes flags that describe the covariance and special constraints of the current generic type parameter.
GenericParameterPosition Gets the position of the type parameter in the type parameter list of the generic type or method that declared the parameter, when the Type object represents a type parameter of a generic type or a generic method.
GenericTypeArguments Gets an array of the generic type arguments for this type.
GUID Gets the GUID associated with the Type.
HasElementType Gets a value indicating whether the current Type encompasses or refers to another type; that is, whether the current Type is an array, a pointer, or is passed by reference.
IsAbstract Gets a value indicating whether the Type is abstract and must be overridden.
IsAnsiClass Gets a value indicating whether the string format attribute AnsiClass is selected for the Type.
IsArray Gets a value indicating whether the Type is an array.
IsAutoClass Gets a value indicating whether the string format attribute AutoClass is selected for the Type.
IsAutoLayout Gets a value indicating whether the class layout attribute AutoLayout is selected for the Type.
IsByRef Gets a value indicating whether the Type is passed by reference.
IsClass Gets a value indicating whether the Type is a class; that is, not a value type or interface.
IsCOMObject Gets a value indicating whether the Type is a COM object.
IsConstructedGenericType Gets a value that indicates whether this object represents a constructed generic type.
IsEnum Gets a value indicating whether the current Type represents an enumeration.
IsExplicitLayout Gets a value indicating whether the class layout attribute ExplicitLayout is selected for the Type.
IsGenericParameter Gets a value indicating whether the current Type represents a type parameter in the definition of a generic type or method.
IsGenericType Gets a value indicating whether the current type is a generic type.
IsGenericTypeDefinition Gets a value indicating whether the current Type represents a generic type definition, from which other generic types can be constructed.
IsImport Gets a value indicating whether the Type has a ComImportAttribute attribute applied, indicating that it was imported from a COM type library.
IsInterface Gets a value indicating whether the Type is an interface; that is, not a class or a value type.
IsLayoutSequential Gets a value indicating whether the class layout attribute SequentialLayout is selected for the Type.
IsMarshalByRef Gets a value indicating whether the Type is marshaled by reference.
IsNested Gets a value indicating whether the current Type object represents a type whose definition is nested inside the definition of another type.
IsNestedAssembly Gets a value indicating whether the Type is nested and visible only within its own assembly.
IsNestedFamANDAssem Gets a value indicating whether the Type is nested and visible only to classes that belong to both its own family and its own assembly.
IsNestedFamily Gets a value indicating whether the Type is nested and visible only within its own family.
IsNestedFamORAssem Gets a value indicating whether the Type is nested and visible only to classes that belong to either its own family or to its own assembly.
IsNestedPrivate Gets a value indicating whether the Type is nested and declared private.
IsNestedPublic Gets a value indicating whether a class is nested and declared public.
IsNotPublic Gets a value indicating whether the Type is not declared public.
IsPointer Gets a value indicating whether the Type is a pointer.
IsPrimitive Gets a value indicating whether the Type is one of the primitive types.
IsPublic Gets a value indicating whether the Type is declared public.
IsSealed Gets a value indicating whether the Type is declared sealed.
IsSerializable Gets a value indicating whether the Type is serializable.
IsSpecialName Gets a value indicating whether the Type has a name that requires special handling.
IsUnicodeClass Gets a value indicating whether the string format attribute UnicodeClass is selected for the Type.
IsValueType Gets a value indicating whether the Type is a value type.
IsVisible Gets a value indicating whether the Type can be accessed by code outside the assembly.
MemberType Gets a MemberTypes value indicating that this member is a type or a nested type. (Overrides MemberInfo..::.MemberType.)
MetadataToken Gets a value that identifies a metadata element. (Inherited from MemberInfo.)
Module Gets the module (the DLL) in which the current Type is defined.
Name Gets the name of the current member. (Inherited from MemberInfo.)
Namespace Gets the namespace of the Type.
ReflectedType Gets the class object that was used to obtain this member. (Overrides MemberInfo..::.ReflectedType.)
TypeHandle Gets the handle for the current Type.
UnderlyingSystemType Indicates the type provided by the common language runtime that represents this type.
