System.Reflection namespaces

The System.Reflection, System.Reflection.Context, and System.Reflection.Emit namespaces contain types that provide a managed view of loaded types, methods, and fields, and that enable customized reflection contexts.

This topic displays the types in the System.Reflection, System.Reflection.Context, and System.Reflection.Emit namespaces that are included in the .NET for Windows Store apps. Note that the .NET for Windows Store apps does not include all the members of each type. For information about individual types, see the linked topics. The documentation for a type indicates which members are included in the .NET for Windows Store apps.

Types supported in the .NET for Windows Store apps

Description

Provides information about methods and constructors.

MethodImplAttributes

Specifies flags for the attributes of a method implementation.

MethodInfo

Discovers the attributes of a method and provides access to method metadata.

Missing

Represents a missing Object. This class cannot be inherited.

PropertyInfo

Discovers the attributes of a property and provides access to property metadata.

ReflectionContext

Represents a context that can provide reflection objects.

ReflectionTypeLoadException

The exception that is thrown by the ModuleGetTypes() method if any of the classes in a module cannot be loaded. This class cannot be inherited.

ResourceLocation

Specifies the resource location.

RuntimeReflectionExtensions

Provides methods that retrieve information about types at run time.

TargetInvocationException

The exception that is thrown by methods invoked through reflection. This class cannot be inherited.

TargetParameterCountException

The exception that is thrown when the number of parameters for an invocation does not match the number expected. This class cannot be inherited.

TypeAttributes
