You need to use reflection, heres an example taken from the online help

The following example creates two public properties and one protected property and displays information for the properties that match the specified binding constraints.

Note   This example shows how to use one of the overloaded versions of GetProperties. For other examples that might be available, see the individual overload topics.

Imports System
Imports System.Reflection
Imports System.Reflection.Emit
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

' Create a class having three properties.
Public Class MyTypeClass
    Public ReadOnly Property MyProperty1() As [String]
            Return "hello"
        End Get
    End Property
    Public ReadOnly Property MyProperty2() As [String]
            Return "hello"
        End Get
    End Property
    Protected ReadOnly Property MyProperty3() As [String]
            Return "hello"
        End Get
    End Property
End Class 'MyTypeClass

Public Class TypeMain
    Public Shared Sub Main()
        Dim myType As Type = GetType(MyTypeClass)
        ' Get the public properties.
        Dim myPropertyInfo As PropertyInfo() = myType.GetProperties((BindingFlags.Public Or BindingFlags.Instance))
        Console.WriteLine("The number of public properties is {0}.", myPropertyInfo.Length.ToString())
        ' Display the public properties.
        ' Get the nonpublic properties.
        Dim myPropertyInfo1 As PropertyInfo() = myType.GetProperties((BindingFlags.NonPublic Or BindingFlags.Instance))
        Console.WriteLine("The number of protected properties is {0}.", myPropertyInfo1.Length.ToString())
        ' Display the nonpublic properties.
    End Sub 'Main

    Public Shared Sub DisplayPropertyInfo(ByVal myPropertyInfo() As PropertyInfo)
        ' Display the information for all properties.
        Dim i As Integer
        For i = 0 To myPropertyInfo.Length - 1
            Dim myPropInfo As PropertyInfo = CType(myPropertyInfo(i), PropertyInfo)
            Console.WriteLine("The property name is {0}.", myPropInfo.Name.ToString())
            Console.WriteLine("The property type is {0}.", myPropInfo.PropertyType.ToString())
        Next i
    End Sub 'DisplayPropertyInfo
End Class 'TypeMain
