name of class

Suppose I have a class called :  

Partial Public Class ShowTds_admin_agencyTable
end class


Is there a way to programmatically, at runtime, obtain the name of the class?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Obtain it from what? An instance of the class? If so, you would use Reflection.

e.g.

Dim x As New ShowTds_admin_agencyTable
Dim className As String = x.GetType().Name

Open in new window

Yes!  That's what I want.   Now, what about the name of the parent class, if the class is inherited?

Dim parentName As String = x.GetType().BaseType.Name
