  Understanding Reflection, Part 1
Subject:   Yes, but Why?

I have read a lot about reflection and understand what it gives me, but I haven't really found myself in a position to need to discover things about an object at run-time in contrast to knowing them at compile-time. I'm not saying there isn't a reason for it--I just don't know what the reason(s) would be. What are some real-world uses of reflection (besides simple use of the typeof operator)?


Thanks.
