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?

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?
