Open Generic Types

I just thought I’d pass this on from Wesner Moise’s .NET Undocumented blog: Open Generic Types seem to be an undocumented feature in C# 2.0 that might be quite useful for Reflection-related work. Basically, it allows the handling of Generic types that haven’t been “closed”, i.e. it’s still unknown which other type(s) the Generic type is supposed to work with. Read it, it’s interesting!

Sorry, this blog does not support comments.

I used various blog hosting services since this blog was established in 2005, but unfortunately they turned out to be unreliable in the long term and comment threads were lost in unavoidable transitions. At this time I don't want to enable third-party services for comments since it has become obvious in recent years that these providers invariably monetize information about their visitors and users.

Please use the links in the page footer to get in touch with me. I'm available for conversations on Keybase, Matrix, Mastodon or Twitter, as well as via email.
