Public Class Example
   ' Public nested class.
   Public Class MyClassB
   End Class
   Public Shared Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)
      ' Get the type of the nested class.
      Dim myTypeB As Type = GetType(Example.MyClassB)
      ' Get the IsNestedPublic property of the nested class.
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format(ControlChars.Cr + "The IsNestedPublic property value of the nested class is {0}.", myTypeB.IsNestedPublic.ToString()) & vbCrLf
   End Sub 'Main
End Class 'MyClassA
using System;
// Enclose a class.
public class Example
{
   // Public nested class.
   public class MyClassB
   {
   }
   public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
   {
      // Get the type of the nested class.
      Type myTypeB = typeof(Example.MyClassB);
      // Get the IsNestedPublic property of the nested class.
      outputBlock.Text += String.Format("\nThe IsNestedPublic property value of the nested class is {0}.", myTypeB.IsNestedPublic.ToString()) + "\n";
   }
