Type.GetTypeFromHandle() Method in C#


The Type.GetTypeFromHandle() method in C# is used to get the type referenced by the specified type handle.

Syntax

Following is the syntax −

public static Type GetTypeFromHandle (RuntimeTypeHandle handle);

Above, the handle parameter is the object that refers to the type.

Example

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

using System;
public class Demo {
   public static void Main(){
      Type type1 = typeof(short);
      RuntimeTypeHandle typeHandle = Type.GetTypeHandle(type1);
      Type type = Type.GetTypeFromHandle(typeHandle);
      Console.WriteLine("Attributes = " + type.Attributes);
   }
}

Output

This will produce the following output −

Attributes = AutoLayout, AnsiClass, Class, Serializable, BeforeFieldInit

Example

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

using System;
public class Demo {
   public static void Main(){
      Type type1 = typeof(System.Type);
      RuntimeTypeHandle typeHandle = Type.GetTypeHandle(type1);
      Type type = Type.GetTypeFromHandle(typeHandle);
      Console.WriteLine("Attributes = " + type.Attributes);
   }
}

Output

This will produce the following output −

Attributes = AutoLayout, AnsiClass, Class, Serializable, BeforeFieldInit
