ByteDev.Reflection

Library of reflection related functionality and extension methods.

Installation

ByteDev.Reflection is hosted as a package on nuget.org. To install from the Package Manager Console in Visual Studio run:

Install-Package ByteDev.Reflection

Further details can be found on the nuget page.

Release Notes

Releases follow semantic versioning.

Full details of the release notes can be viewed on GitHub.

Usage

AssemblyEmbeddedResource

Represents an assembly's embedded resource.

// Retrieve an assembly's embedded resource and save it to disk

var assembly = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();
var embeddedFile = "EmbeddedResource1.txt";

AssemblyEmbeddedResource resource = AssemblyEmbeddedResource.CreateFromAssembly(assembly, embeddedFile);

resource.Save(Path.Combine(@"C:\Temp\", embeddedFile));

ObjectConstruction

Initialize objects by calling their constructors using reflection.

// Initialize with no params

public class PrivateCtor
{
    private PrivateCtor()
    {
    }
}

// ...

var test = ObjectConstruction.ConstructNonPublic<PrivateCtor>();
// Initialize with params

public class InternalCtorWithParam
{
    public int Value { get; set; }

    internal InternalCtorWithParam(int value)
    {
        Value = value;
    }
}

// ...

var parameters = new Dictionary<Type, object>
{
    {typeof(int), 10}
};

var test = ObjectConstruction.ConstructNonPublic<InternalCtorWithParam>(parameters);

// test.Value == 10
