ITypeSignature Interface

Defines the functionalities that are common to all representations of a type (TypeDefDeclaration, TypeRefDeclaration, TypeSpecDeclaration, TypeSignature).

Namespace:  PostSharp.Sdk.CodeModel
Assembly:  PostSharp.Compiler.Engine (in PostSharp.Compiler.Engine.dll) Version: 6.10.14.0 (6.10.14.0)
Syntax
C#
public interface ITypeSignature : IModuleElement, 
	IVisitable<ITypeSignature>, IGeneric, IEquatable<ITypeSignature>, 
	IWriteReflectionName

The ITypeSignature type exposes the following members.

Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyDeclaringAssembly
Gets the declaring assembly.
(Inherited from IModuleElement.)
Public propertyIsGenericDefinition
Determines whether the current instance is a generic definition, i.e. whether it can be used to construct generic instances.
(Inherited from IGeneric.)
Public propertyIsGenericInstance
Determines whether the current instance is a generic instance, i.e. whether it has been constructed from a generic definition.
(Inherited from IGeneric.)
Public propertyIsSealed
Determines whether the type is sealed. When a type is sealed, it not possible to have a type that derives from this type.
Public propertyModule
Gets the declaring module.
(Inherited from IModuleElement.)
Public propertyTypeSignatureElementKind
Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodContainsGenericArguments (Inherited from IGeneric.)
Public methodEquals
Indicates whether the current object is equal to another object of the same type.
(Inherited from IEquatable<ITypeSignature>.)
Public methodGetCanonicalHashCode
Gets a hash code that is invariant under type signature equality (i.e. if two types are equal under IEquatable<T>, they have the same canonical hash code).
Public methodGetGenericContext
Gets the generic context inside the scope of the generic instance.
(Inherited from IGeneric.)
Public methodGetNakedType
Returns the meaningful type. Removes specified modifiers and resolves type references.
Public methodGetSystemType(Type[], Type[])
Gets the system, runtime Type corresponding to the current type.
Public methodGetSystemType(Type[], Type[], BindingOptions)
Gets the system, runtime Type corresponding to the current type.
Public methodGetTypeDefinition
Finds in the current domain the TypeDefDeclaration corresponding to the current type and specifies BindingOptions.
Public methodGetValueSize
Gets the size of the value type.
Public methodIsValueTypeSafe
Public methodMapGenericArguments
Resolves all generic arguments in the current type signature.
Public methodMatchesReference
Determines whether the current type signature matches a given type signature.
Public methodTranslate
Translates the current element so that it can be used in a given module.
(Inherited from IModuleElement.)
Public methodTranslateType
Translates the current type signature so that it is meaningful in another module than the one to which it primarily belong.
Public methodVisit (Inherited from IVisitable<ITypeSignature>.)
Public methodWriteReflectionName(StringBuilder, ReflectionNameOptions)
Writes the name of the current declaration to a StringBuilder.
(Inherited from IWriteReflectionName.)
Public methodWriteReflectionName(StringBuilder, ReflectionNameOptions, NameMapper)
Writes the name of the current declaration to a StringBuilder and specifies a NameMapper.
(Inherited from IWriteReflectionName.)
