Access a property using reflection

Cum putem face get/set la o proprietate prin intermediul la reflection. Odata ce avem tipul obiectului care contine proprietate, este de ajuns sa apelam InvokeMember si sa specificam numele proprietatii.
private TReturn GetProperty<TReturn>(object obj, string propertyName)
{
return (TReturn) obj.GetType().InvokeMember(
propertyName,
BindingFlags.GetProperty,
null,
obj,
null);
}

private void SetProperty(object obj, string propertyName, object value)
{
obj.GetType().InvokeMember(
propertyName,
BindingFlags.SetProperty,
null,
obj,
new object[] { value });
}
BindingsFlags se poate seta printr-un OR logic, in functie de proprietatea cu care lucram( publica, privata, statica, etc). De exemplu, pentru o proprietate publica si care nu este statica putem sa avem urmatorul apel:
 obj.GetType().InvokeMember(
propertyName,
BindingFlags.Instance | BindingFlags.Public | BindingFlags.SetProperty,
Type.DefaultBinder,
obj,
new object[] { value });
O alta modalitate de a lucra cu proprietati este sa obtim o instanta la PropertyInfo pentru proprietatea noastra, iar apoi sa facem get/set pe aceasta in felul urmator:
PropertyInfo propertyInfo = obj.GetType().GetProperty(propertyName);
propertyInfo.SetValue(obj, value, null);
Nu trebuie sa uitam ca numele la proprietate este case-sensitive.
Am incercat sa compar accesul direct la o proprietate cu cel prin reflection pentru 100.000.000 de accesari. Accesul proprietatilor prin reflection este cu circa 150 de ori mai lent decat prin accesul direct a unei proprietati. Per secunda, am avut circa ~145.000.000 de iteratii pe secunda pentru accesul direct in comparatie cu circa ~940.000.000 de iteratii pe secunde pentru accesul prin reflection.
Dar codul care folosea reflection nu a fost deloc optimizat. O sa revin cu un post in care o sa facem o optimizare a codului care foloseste reflection.
Enjoy!

  1. Daca un anume property e accesat de mai multe ori, poate ar merita vazut daca e mai performant sa folosesti Expression.Property(..) si sa cache-uiesti rezultatul..

  3. Nu prea am înțeles, de ce e nevoie să folosesti BindingFlags.Public?

  4. Prin intermediul la BindingFlag se setaza "locatia" unde se cauta membrul dat. De exemplu se foloseste Public, cand membrul este public. Daca acesta ar fi privat atunci ar fi nevoie sa se foloseasca BindingFlag.NonPublic. Daca membrul este static atunci se foloseste BindingFlag.Static. De multe ori este nevoie sa foloseste mai multe valori folosing un OR logic('|').

  5. Sunt curios dacă poți ignora modificatorii de acces în felul ăsta, setând valori pentru o proprietate privată sau protected chiar dacă ești afară din linia de moștenire.

  6. Prin reflection poti sa accesezi orice field privat. Uitate peste urmatorul link si vezi ce combinatii poti sa faci.

  7. Dar poți și seta valori pe un field privat?

ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient' could not be loaded

Today blog post will be started with the following error when running DB tests on the CI machine:
threw exception: System.InvalidOperationException: The Entity Framework provider type 'System.Data.Entity.SqlServer.SqlProviderServices, EntityFramework.SqlServer' registered in the application config file for the ADO.NET provider with invariant name 'System.Data.SqlClient' could not be loaded. Make sure that the assembly-qualified name is used and that the assembly is available to the running application. See http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=260882 for more information. at System.Data.Entity.Infrastructure.DependencyResolution.ProviderServicesFactory.GetInstance(String providerTypeName, String providerInvariantName) This error happened only on the Continuous Integration machine. On the devs machines, everything has fine. The classic problem – on my machine it’s working. The CI has the following configuration:

Entity Framework (EF) TransactionScope vs Database.BeginTransaction

In today blog post we will talk a little about a new feature that is available on EF6+ related to Transactions.
Until now, when we had to use transaction we used ‘TransactionScope’. It works great and I would say that is something that is now in our blood.
using (var scope = new TransactionScope(TransactionScopeOption.Required)) { using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection("...")) { conn.Open(); SqlCommand sqlCommand = new SqlCommand(); sqlCommand.Connection = conn; sqlCommand.CommandText = ... sqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery(); ... } scope.Complete(); } Starting with EF6.0 we have a new way to work with transactions. The new approach is based on Database.BeginTransaction(), Database.Rollback(), Database.Commit(). Yes, no more TransactionScope.
In the followi…

GET call of REST API that contains '/'-slash character in the value of a parameter

Let’s assume that we have the following scenario: I have a public HTTP endpoint and I need to post some content using GET command. One of the parameters contains special characters like “\” and “/”. If the endpoint is an ApiController than you may have problems if you encode the parameter using the http encoder.
using (var httpClient = new HttpClient()) { httpClient.BaseAddress = baseUrl; Task<HttpResponseMessage> response = httpClient.GetAsync(string.Format("api/foo/{0}", "qwert/qwerqwer"))); response.Wait(); response.Result.EnsureSuccessStatusCode(); } One possible solution would be to encode the query parameter using UrlTokenEncode method of HttpServerUtility class and GetBytes method ofUTF8. In this way you would get the array of bytes of the parameter and encode them as a url token.
The following code show to you how you could write the encode and decode methods.
