PropertyBuilder.GetGetMethod Method (Boolean)

Returns the public or non-public get accessor for this property.

Namespace:  System.Reflection.Emit
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)


Public Overrides Function GetGetMethod ( _
    nonPublic As Boolean _
) As MethodInfo
public override MethodInfo GetGetMethod(
    bool nonPublic


  • nonPublic
    Type: System.Boolean
    true to return a non-public accessor; otherwise, false.

Return Value

Type: System.Reflection.MethodInfo
The get accessor for this property, if nonPublic is true. Returns nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if nonPublic is false and the get accessor is non-public, or if nonPublic is true but no get accessor exists.


This method can be used on an incomplete PropertyBuilder object. A property might lack a get accessor because it is write-only, or because the get accessor has not been assigned yet. To assign a get accessor to a property, use the SetGetMethod method.
