How do I get variable names in a class as strings through reflection? I know that local variables will be renamed but it should be possible for non-locals.

Thanks

Something like this:

For fields:
foreach (System.Reflection.PropertyInfo p in yourClass.GetType().GetFields())
{
      // do something with p.ToString()
}

For properties:
foreach (System.Reflection.PropertyInfo p in yourClass.GetType().GetProperties())
{
      // do something with p.ToString()
}

... and if you don't want to use an instance of your class, preferring to reference the class directly, you could write

foreach(FieldInfo field in typeof(MyClass).GetFields()) Console.WriteLine(field.Name);
