The Type.GetElementType() method in C# is used to return the Type of the object encompassed or referred to by the current array, pointer or reference type.

Syntax

Following is the syntax −

public abstract Type GetElementType ();

Example

Let us now see an example to implement the Type.GetElementType() method −

using System;
public class Demo {
   public static void Main(){
      string[] arr = {"tom", "amit", "kevin", "katie"};
      Type t1 = arr.GetType();
      Type t2 = t1.GetElementType();
      Console.WriteLine("Type = "+t2.ToString());
   }
}

Output

This will produce the following output −

Type = System.String

Example

Let us now see another example to implement the Type.GetElementType() method −

using System;
public class Demo {
   public static void Main(){
      Type t1 = typeof(int[,,,, ]);
      Type t2 = t1.GetElementType();
      Console.WriteLine("Type = "+t2.ToString());
