Having read a great many posts on using reflection to get a list of methods in a given class, I am still having trouble getting that list and need to ask for help. This is my current code:
Function GetClassMethods(ByVal theType As Type) As List(Of String) Dim methodNames As New List(Of String) For Each method In theType.GetMethods() methodNames.Add(method.Name) Next Return methodNames End Function
I call this method like this:
The return has 43 methods, but I only want the methods I wrote in the class. The image below shows the beginning of what was returned. My declared methods are in this list, but down at location 31-37. There are actually 9 declared methods, but this list doesn’t show the Private methods.
When I look at
theType, I see the property I want. It is
DeclaredMethods which shows every declared method, public and private.
However, I’m not able to access this property with a statement such as this.
Dim methodList = theType.DeclaredMethods
The returned error is that
DelaredMethods is not a member of Type. So, my questions are multiple:
1) Most important, what code do I need to retrieve every declared method in the class, and only the methods I declared?
2) Why am I not able to access the property that gives the list of DeclaredMethods()?
