The TypeRefDeclaration type exposes the following members.

Constructors
  NameDescription
Public methodTypeRefDeclaration
Initializes a new TypeRefDeclaration.
Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyAttributes
Gets or sets the type attributes.
Public propertyCustomDebuggingInformation (Inherited from Declaration.)
Public propertyDeclaringAssembly
Gets the declaring assembly.
(Overrides Declaration.DeclaringAssembly.)
Public propertyDeclaringType
Gets the declaring type (i.e. the type in which the current type is nested), or null if the current type is not nested.
Public propertyGenericParameterCount
Gets the number of (formal, unbound) generic parameters.
Public propertyIsGenericDefinition
Determines whether the current instance is a generic definition, i.e. whether it can be used to construct generic instances.
Public propertyIsOriginal
Determines whether the current declaration existed in the source assembly.
(Inherited from MetadataDeclaration.)
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 propertyIsStatic
Public propertyIsWeaklyReferenced
Determines whether the current declaration is weakly or strongly referenced in the current module.
Public propertyMetadataToken
Gets or sets the token of the current declaration.
(Inherited from MetadataDeclaration.)
Public propertyName
Gets or sets the name of the current declaration.
(Inherited from NamedMetadataDeclaration.)
Public propertyOriginalDeclaration
When the declaration represents another declaration in the source assembly, this property refers to this declaration. When using GetReflectionObject(Type[], Type[], BindingOptions), the original declaration should actually be retrieved.
(Inherited from MetadataDeclaration.)
Public propertyOriginalName (Inherited from NamedMetadataDeclaration.)
Public propertyParentMember
Gets the parent member of the current declaration.
(Overrides MetadataDeclaration.ParentMember.)
Public propertyParentType
Gets the parent type of the current declaration.
(Overrides MetadataDeclaration.ParentType.)
Public propertyProjectedType
Public propertyTypeIdentifier
Public propertyVisibility
Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodClearCache
Clear the cache (typically mapping to System.Reflection or, if the current element is a reference, to the related definition) of the current Element and all its children.
(Overrides Element.ClearCache().)
Public methodContainsGenericArguments
Public methodDispose Obsolete. (Inherited from MetadataDeclaration.)
Public methodEquals(Object)
Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodEquals(ITypeSignature)
Indicates whether the current object is equal to another object of the same type.
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.
Public methodGetGenericInstance
Gets a generic instance of this type.
Public methodGetGenericParameter
Gets a generic (formal, unbound) parameter given its ordinal.
Public methodGetHashCode
Serves as the default hash function.
(Inherited from Object.)
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 methodGetTag<T>
Gets a tag associated with the current declaration.
(Inherited from MetadataDeclaration.)
Public methodGetTokenType
Gets the TokenType of the derived declaration.
(Overrides MetadataDeclaration.GetTokenType().)
Public methodGetType
Gets the Type of the current instance.
(Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeDefinition
Finds in the current domain the TypeDefDeclaration corresponding to the current type and specifies BindingOptions.
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 methodSetTag<T>
Set a tag to the current declaration.
(Inherited from MetadataDeclaration.)
Public methodToString (Inherited from NamedMetadataDeclaration.)
Public methodTranslate
Public methodWriteReflectionName(StringBuilder, ReflectionNameOptions)
Gets the full type name according the conventions of System.Reflection (with the namespace and nesting type but without the assembly name).
Public methodWriteReflectionName(StringBuilder, ReflectionNameOptions, NameMapper)
Writes the name of the current declaration to a StringBuilder and specifies a NameMapper.

Remarks
Type references are owned by types implementing the ITypeRefResolutionScope interface, i.e. TypeRefDeclaration (in case of nested types), AssemblyRefDeclaration, ModuleRefDeclaration and ModuleDeclaration (although the latest case should never occur).
