How many members in the .Net framework contain the string ‘file” ?

 

Make a query like this:

 

 

        Dim q As Object

        q = From Assembly In AppDomain.CurrentDomain.GetAssemblies _

                From typ In Assembly.GetTypes _

                From Member In typ.GetMembers _

                Where Member.Name.ToLower.Contains("file") _

                Select Assembly, typ, Member.MemberType, Member.Name, Member.Module

 

 

This comes up with 1292!

 

Of course, you can use the Object Browser, but that’s not as much fun<g>

 

Sample results:

 

GetXmlNodeFilename

System.Configuration.ConfigurationException

HttpDataChunkFromFileHandle

System.Net.UnsafeNclNativeMethods+HttpApi+HTTP_DATA_CHUNK_TYPE

perfVSHelpXLinkIndexInitializeMergedFileCachedPageSlots

Microsoft.Internal.Performance.CodeMarkerEvent

 

 

Are there more properties or events?

 

        q = From Assembly In AppDomain.CurrentDomain.GetAssemblies _

                From typ In Assembly.GetTypes _

                From Member In typ.GetMembers _

                Group By Member.MemberType Into Count() Order By Count Descending

How many static (shared in VB) members are there (those that can be called without an instance of the containing class, like System.IO.Directory.GetFiles)?

 

        q = From Assembly In AppDomain.CurrentDomain.GetAssemblies _

                From typ In Assembly.GetTypes _

                From Meth In typ.GetMethods _

                Where Meth.IsStatic _

                Select Assembly, typ, Meth.MemberType, Meth.Name, Meth.Module, Meth.IsStatic _

                Order By Name
