Product Description

From the Publisher

The Visual Basic .NET Reflection Handbook lifts the lid on one of the most widely useful aspects of the .NET platform - reflection. In the process, it examines dynamic object creation, attribute-based programming, and code generation. Focusing on practical applications for reflection and attributes, the book exposes a number of key programming techniques that enable developers to build more flexible, extensible, dynamic applications.

Very pleased 2 Oct. 2002

I've considered reflection one of the neatest features of .Net, but have scarcely seen it covered in the books I've read so far. This book exactly hit the spot. In 242 pages it succintly explains reflection in a very readable manner. It describes the 'why to do things' and not just the 'how to do things'. It even points out where using reflection would be overkill. I'm very pleased.

Very enjoyable and well worth the[money] 5 Nov. 2002
By "foggonda" - Published on
One of a growing series of books, this is the second that I'd picked up and even better than the first one (which was the Remoting). This book covers reflection in all its glory - giving all the details that we need to use reflection to the full. Where the book stands out from others is that it not only gives the technical details but also puts all the examples into a real world situation giving an insight into why we're using reflection in the first place. Definitely worth the [money] ...

Great book. Would fit on any shelf. 24 Dec. 2008

I purchased this book to help me out with a few things we were thinking about looking into at work but it's shown me so much more. It does a very good job of discussing Reflection, as well as the various places that it would be used. It gives useful examples and doesn't weigh you down with too much code that has nothing to do with the purpose of the examples. This is one book that would do well to find it's way onto any dot net developers book shelf. It's a great resource that I see my self using for a while. It's also led me to purchase a few other books relating to topics it touches on but only goes into enough depth to show how they could be useful to reflection. For example, the Abstract Factory pattern and how reflection can be used to make it even more extensible in an application. Every time i turn the page i find myself saying "That's exactly what i was looking for" over and over again. You won't be disappointed with this purchase.

One of the better publications for tips and tricks. Well written to explain a somewhat difficult subject.

Not quite what I expected 31 Dec. 2002
By David Taylor - Published on

This book serves as a good introductory to .NET Reflection. The book doesn't cover the Reflection.Emit class which is primarily what I was looking to learn about. I am some what disappointed.
