When I started working on application I am working right now, one of first things I noticed, that was not entirely wrong but was inconvenient: when user clicked on some button that triggers update panel you was not entirely sure it worked or not. Why? Because of three things: Continue reading “Global UpdatePanel loading indicator in ASP.NET”
Other day I was experimenting with finding which UpdatePanel will be updated during page post back.
I found out that my solution was not working correctly for complex triggers, like user controls with custom events, which will trigger async postbacks and update of panel.

Object type, for getting private field an private property. It’s pretty straightforward, besides one thing: since member is private. And we don’t know in witch type exactly (every type in base/descendant hierarchy have it’s one private members) we have to search them all. So this is final code: Continue reading “Getting private field or property from object”
