Hi,

Is there a way to get the names of methods and attributes of other classes  (also if they are declared private)?

Lets fx. say that I would like to list all the attribute names(and values), and method names from the Color class.

What would I do??

Kind regards,

Nic

Try this:

        Class c = Color.class;
        Method[] m = c.getDeclaredMethods();
        Field[] f = c.getDeclaredFields();

You can find more information in package "java.lang.reflect"

"Reflection" is the word.
You can even invoke the methods you found this way.
