C# | Getting the Type of the Tuple’s Element
  • Last Updated : 30 Apr, 2019

A tuple is a data structure which gives you the easiest way to represent a data set. You can get the type of the tuple objects by using the GetType method. This method will return the type of the tuple objects. This method is inherited from the Object Class.

Syntax:

public Type GetType ();

Return Type: The return type of this method is Type. Means it return the type of the Tuple<> object, where Tuple<> is may be 1-tuple, or 2-tuple, or 3-tuple, or 4-tuple, or 5-tuple, or 6-tuple, or 7-tuple, or 8-tuple.

Below programs illustrate the use of the above-discuss method:

Example 1:




// C# program to illustrate the 
// use of GetType method
using System;
  
class GFG {
  
    // Main Method
    static public void Main()
    {
  
        // Taking 1-Tuple
        var v1 = Tuple.Create("Geeks");
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the element of 1-Tuple: " + v1.Item1.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine();
  
        // Taking 2-Tuple
        var v2 = Tuple.Create("GeeksforGeeks", 23);
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the First Element of 2-Tuple: " + v2.Item1.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the Second Element of 2-Tuple: " + v2.Item2.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine();
  
        // Taking 3-Tuple
        var v3 = Tuple.Create("geeks", 234, 90.9);
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the First element of 3-Tuple: " + v3.Item1.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the Second element of 3-Tuple: " + v3.Item2.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the Third element of 3-Tuple: " + v3.Item3.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine();
  
        // Taking 4-Tuple
        var v4 = Tuple.Create("geeks", 567, 56.7, 'g');
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the First element of 3-Tuple: " + v4.Item1.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the Second element of 3-Tuple: " + v4.Item2.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the Third element of 3-Tuple: " + v4.Item3.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the Fourth element of 3-Tuple: " + v4.Item4.GetType());
     
        // Taking 7-Tuple
        var v7 = Tuple.Create("geeks", 234.0, 90.9f, 56.6m, 67.8, true, 67.8);
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the First element of 7-Tuple: " + v7.Item1.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the Second element of 7-Tuple: " + v7.Item2.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the Third element of 7-Tuple: " + v7.Item3.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the Fourth element of 7-Tuple: " + v7.Item4.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the Fifth element of 7-Tuple: " + v7.Item5.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the Sixth element of 7-Tuple: " + v7.Item6.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine("Type of the Seventh element of 7-Tuple: " + v7.Item7.GetType());
        Console.WriteLine();
  
    }
}
Output:
Type of the element of 1-Tuple: System.String

Type of the First Element of 2-Tuple: System.String
Type of the Second Element of 2-Tuple: System.Int32

Type of the First element of 3-Tuple: System.String
Type of the Second element of 3-Tuple: System.Int32
Type of the Third element of 3-Tuple: System.Double

Type of the First element of 3-Tuple: System.String
Type of the Second element of 3-Tuple: System.Int32
Type of the Third element of 3-Tuple: System.Double
Type of the Fourth element of 3-Tuple: System.Char
Type of the First element of 7-Tuple: System.String
Type of the Second element of 7-Tuple: System.Double
Type of the Third element of 7-Tuple: System.Single
Type of the Fourth element of 7-Tuple: System.Decimal
Type of the Fifth element of 7-Tuple: System.Double
Type of the Sixth element of 7-Tuple: System.Boolean
Type of the Seventh element of 7-Tuple: System.Double
