I can Get name and definition of all table types using either of the following scripts:

SET TRANSACTION ISOLATION LEVEL READ UNCOMMITTED


IF OBJECT_ID('TEMPDB..#RADHE') IS NOT NULL
   DROP TABLE #RADHE

CREATE TABLE #RADHE
(
 RADHE SYSNAME,
 COLUMN_NAME SYSNAME,
 TYPE_COLUMN SYSNAME,
 PRIMARY KEY CLUSTERED (RADHE,COLUMN_NAME)
 )

DECLARE @sql nvarchar(max) = N'', 
  @stub nvarchar(max) = N'SELECT [RADHE]=N''$--RADHE--$'', 
   COLUMN_NAME=name, TYPE_COLUMN=system_type_name
   FROM sys.dm_exec_describe_first_result_set(''DECLARE 
   @tvp $--RADHE--$; SELECT * FROM @tvp;'',null,null)
   ORDER BY column_ordinal;';

SELECT @sql += REPLACE(@stub, N'$--RADHE--$', 
  QUOTENAME(s.name) + N'.' + QUOTENAME(t.name))
FROM sys.table_types AS t
INNER JOIN sys.schemas AS s
ON t.[schema_id] = s.[schema_id];

INSERT INTO #RADHE 
EXEC sys.sp_executesql @sql;

SELECT * FROM #RADHE

enter image description here

SELECT
    tt.name AS table_type_name,
    c.name AS column_name,
    c.column_id,
    t.name AS type_name,
    c.max_length,
    c.precision,
    c.scale,
    c.collation_name,
    c.is_nullable
FROM 
    sys.columns As c
    JOIN sys.table_types AS tt
        ON c.object_id = tt.type_table_object_id
    JOIN sys.types AS t
        ON t.user_type_id = c.user_type_id
ORDER BY
    tt.name,
    c.column_id

enter image description here

and I can even GRANT REFERENCE on all user defined types using the following script:

    SELECT t.name, 
           'GRANT REFERENCES ON TYPE::' 
           + SCHEMA_NAME(t.schema_id) 
           + '.' 
           + t.name 
           + ' TO public;' AS command_to_run
    FROM   sys.types AS t
where 1=1
 AND T.is_table_type = 1

enter image description here

But is there a way to script out all table types in a database?

I am looking to script out this table type, please note the constraints and index created with it:

use TableBackups
go

IF EXISTS(SELECT * 
            FROM SYS.table_types tt
           WHERE tt.NAME=N'DistCritGroupData' 
             AND SCHEMA_NAME(tt.SCHEMA_ID) = N'dbo')
   DROP TYPE DBO.DistCritGroupData

CREATE TYPE [dbo].[DistCritGroupData] AS TABLE
  (
    [DistCritTypeId] [int] NOT NULL UNIQUE,
    [ItemAction] [int] NOT NULL,        
    [ObjectId] [int] NOT NULL,
    [OperatorType] [int] NOT NULL,

    PRIMARY KEY NONCLUSTERED 
    (
       [DistCritTypeId] ASC
    ),

    INDEX CIX CLUSTERED (ObjectId, OperatorType)    
  );

Here my script to create user-defined table and scalar types:

Honestly, the amount of time you'll spend writing a version of this that accounts for all possible combinations of indexes, constraints, and default values, and troubleshoot all the combinations you don't expect from your first use case, I don't think you'll ever get that time back no matter how many table types you have to script, which you can always do from Object Explorer (or Object Explorer Details, for multiple):

enter image description here

Just for fun, I ran a trace to see what Management Studio sends to SQL Server in order to generate the create script for that table type, and it was about as pretty as I expected:

I mean, that is just awful. And all it does is return all of those resultsets to SSMS; then there is some C# and/or SMO plumbing that actually steps through all the possible combinations and generates the script. This is hidden away in application code that is much harder to trace (especially without violating EULA), and so your ability to determine all of the issues they encountered when generating the script is pretty limited.

So I think if your goal is to have a nice, handy little piece of T-SQL code that is faster than right-clicking a table name in Object Explorer, you're going to be out of luck.

If I didn't have SSMS (or the plan was to create 60,000 table types), I would rather keep track of these creations using a DDL trigger than try to reverse engineer the metadata to generate the original statement. I wrote this tip a long time ago, but the same concepts apply today (you could maybe just filter the types of objects you keep track of):

Borrowing from that, you could create this table:

CREATE TABLE dbo.TableTypeCreationEvents
(
  EventDate    datetime NOT NULL DEFAULT sysutcdatetime(),
  EventDDL     nvarchar(max),
  SchemaName   nvarchar(128),
  ObjectName   nvarchar(128)
);

And then this trigger:

CREATE TRIGGER DDLCaptureTableTypeCreations ON DATABASE
  FOR CREATE_TYPE
AS
BEGIN
  SET NOCOUNT ON;

  DECLARE @EventData xml = EVENTDATA();

  DECLARE 
    @sch sysname = @EventData.value(N'(/EVENT_INSTANCE/SchemaName)[1]', N'nvarchar(128)'),
    @obj sysname = @EventData.value(N'(/EVENT_INSTANCE/ObjectName)[1]', N'nvarchar(128)'),
    @s nvarchar(max) 
                 = @EventData.value(N'(/EVENT_INSTANCE/TSQLCommand)[1]', N'nvarchar(max)');

  IF EXISTS (SELECT 1 FROM sys.table_types 
    WHERE name = @obj AND [schema_id] = SCHEMA_ID(@sch))
  BEGIN
    INSERT dbo.TableTypeCreationEvents(EventDDL,SchemaName,ObjectName)
      SELECT @s,@sch,@tab;
  END
END
GO

Now, some time has passed, and you want the script for the most recent version of the type dbo.DistCritGroupData? No problem:

SELECT TOP (1) EventDDL 
  FROM dbo.TableTypeCreationEvents
  WHERE [schema_id] = SCHEMA_ID(N'dbo')
    AND name = N'DistCritGroupData'
  ORDER BY EventDate DESC;

This will return exactly the same script that you ran when you created the type, and since there is no ALTER TYPE, you don't have to worry about catching a table type up to any changes that have been made since its creation.
