#660 – The typeof Operator Gets Information About a Type

You can use the typeof operator to get information about a particular type.  The operator returns an instance of the Type class, which you can then query to get info about the type.

typeof is a little different from the GetType method in System.Object.  typeof gets type information for a type, whereas GetType gets type information for an object’s type.
