Mirrors

Micro C# lib for easier reflection.

Install

Install-Package Mirrors

Or visit https://www.nuget.org/packages/Mirrors/ for more details.

API

Example:

Lets start with a basic example:

// just a testing class..
class Annie
{
	public string Name;
	public string HitBy;
	public bool IsOk;

	public void TellUs(string what)
	{
	}
}

static void Main(string[] args)
{
	// create annie
	Annie annie = new Annie();
	
	// set some fields
	Mirrors.Set(annie, "Name", "Annie");
	Mirrors.Set(annie, "hitby", "A smooth criminal", ignoreCase: true);
	Mirrors.SetFromString(annie, "IsOk", "false");
	
	// get fields
	bool isOk = Mirrors.Get<bool>(annie, "IsOk");
	
	// invoke
	Mirrors.Invoke(annie, "TellUs", new object[] { "Are you ok?" });
}

Mirrors

Mirrors is the main API class with all basic functionality:

Mirrors.Set(obj, fieldName, value, [ignoreCase], [fromString])

Set field / property value by name (similar to Python's setattr).

Mirrors.SetFromString(obj, fieldName, value, [ignoreCase])

Set field / property value by name, after converting value from string.

Mirrors.Get(obj, fieldName, [ignoreCase])

Get field / property value by name (similar to Python's getattr).

Mirrors.ClassName(obj)

Return object's classname as string.

Mirrors.Invoke(obj, funcName, [optionalParams], [_this])

Invoke a method by name.

Mirrors.Keys(obj, [publicOnly], [declaredOnly])

Get all field, property and method names in object.

Mirrors.ParseEnum(str)

Parse enum value from string.

MirrorsEx

MirrorsEx provide some extra, more specific functionality. Check out class docs (in code) for more details.

Exceptions

Mirrors may raise the following exceptions:

FieldNotFoundException

A field you were trying to access does not exist.

PropertyNotWritableException

You were trying to write to a read-only property.

PropertyNotReadableException

You were trying to read from a write-only property.

WrongTypeException

Wrong type in get value (for example tried to get bool from a string field).

BadStringFormatException

Tried to set value from string but had wrong format(for example tying to set bool from "bla bla" string).

MissingConverterException

Tried to set value from string to a class that doesn't support that type of converter.
