Module

Synopsis

Modules are .NET executable files (either .EXE or .DLL files) consisting of classes or interfaces. One or more modules and other resources (such as graphics) make up an assembly. The Module class allows reflection of these executables. FilterTypeName and FilterTypeNameIgnoreCase are static properties that return a TypeFilter delegate that filters types by name. The first is case-sensitive, and the second is case-insensitive. Assembly returns the appropriate Assembly object that this is part of. Name returns the filename of this module and FullyQualifiedName returns that filename as well as the full path. Use FindTypes() to return a list of types from a module accepted by a TypeFilter delegate. The methods prefixed with Get return the specific methods, types, or fields contained in this module, and IsDefined() checks whether a specific attribute is defined on the module.
