is a MustInherit base class that
encapsulates the metadata for any .NET type. You can get a
Type object by using the
which is inherited by all .NET types, or by the VB.NET GetType function.
Type is used most often for reflection.
You can get a complete description of an object’s metadata,
including information about the constructors, methods, fields,
properties, and events of a class, as well as the module and the
assembly in which the class is deployed by using it. Do this by using the
Get methods, such as
GetConstructors(), which return arrays
of the appropriate
System.Reflection class. You can also
use the singular methods, such as
retrieve a single type object that matches specific criteria. Note that
all members can be retrieved, including inherited, private, and
