SysExpand.Reflection Namespace
by Zoran Horvat @zoranh75
September 02, 2011

SysExpand.Reflection namespace contains classes that can be used to reflect upon other types. Current release covers topic of late binding and of handling events raised by managed types. These two sets of classes, both assembled as within the SysExpand.Reflection library, are extending the usual .NET Framework functionality.

SysExpand.Reflection namespace defines number of types that can be used to dynamically subscribe to events published by managed types even when signature (i.e. delegate type) of the event is not known in advance. This peculiar functionality is not provided by .NET Framework. SysExpand.Reflection classes are offering solution to this problem. For more details please refer to the manual.

Late binding classes are defined in the SysExpand.Reflection.LateBinding namespace. They are offering easy to use solution for late binding tasks. Caller can bind to types, instantiate them and invoke members in quite safe and simple way. Much of the effort required by .NET Framework to do the same task, mostly concerning error handling, is avoided when using SysExpand late binding library because it performs most of the work itself, leaving the caller only take care of the intended late bound calls. To read more about SysExpand late binding library, please refer to the manual.
