C#

I am having function calls like below,


string LstrCurrentVP = string.Empty;
string LstrPriorVP = string.Empty;
LstrCurrentVP = BuildVP1Str(LobjCurrentVehiclePremiumsList, LstrCurrentVP, "Current");
LstrPriorVP = BuildVP1Str(LobjPriorVehiclePremiumsList, LstrPriorVP, "Prior");

string LstrCurrentVP = string.Empty;
string LstrPriorVP = string.Empty;
LstrCurrentVP = BuildVP2Str(LobjCurrentVehiclePremiumsList, LstrCurrentVP, "Current");
LstrPriorVP = BuildVP2Str(LobjPriorVehiclePremiumsList, LstrPriorVP, "Prior");

string LstrCurrentVP = string.Empty;
string LstrPriorVP = string.Empty;
LstrCurrentVP = BuildVP3Str(LobjCurrentVehiclePremiumsList, LstrCurrentVP, "Current");
LstrPriorVP = BuildVP3Str(LobjPriorVehiclePremiumsList, LstrPriorVP, "Prior");

I have methods like, BuildVP1Str, BuildVP2Str, BuildVP3Str ......BuildVP16Str.

Is there is any way, to call the method dynamically? I mean, since I have the method as 1, 2 etc...

Is it possible to dynamically frame method names and call inside the loop?

for eg,

for(int1=o;i<=16;i++)
{
string LstrCurrentVP = string.Empty;
string LstrPriorVP = string.Empty;
LstrCurrentVP = "BuildVP" + 1 + "Str"(LobjCurrentVehiclePremiumsList, LstrCurrentVP, "Current");
LstrPriorVP = "BuildVP" + 1 + "Str"(LobjPriorVehiclePremiumsList, LstrPriorVP, "Prior");
}


Since I am using vs 2005, i can't pass function names as parameters.

I thought of delegates but i don't hink for my scenario, I can go for it.

I know, I can't call a function (or use function name) like this "BuildVP" + 1 + "Str"(),

I just want to be clear that I want to do something of that sort. Is ther is any concepts for this in VS 2005.

Please help.

It could be something like this using Reflection.  BTW, it assumes all BuildVP methods are on the same class and they are all public.
for (int i = 1; i <= 16; i++)
{
    string LstrCurrentVP = string.Empty;
    string LstrPriorVP = string.Empty;

    MethodInfo buildVP = this.GetType().GetMethod("BuildVP" + i + "Str");

    LstrCurrentVP = (string)buildVP.Invoke(this, new object[] { LobjCurrentVehiclePremiumsList, LstrCurrentVP, "Current" });
    LstrPriorVP = (string)buildVP.Invoke(this, new object[] { LobjCurrentVehiclePremiumsList, LstrCurrentVP, "Prior" });
}

Thankyou....so much....It's working fine.

I have another quesry related to this, in the same for loop,
I want to concat both string and assing to one variable.
Again, I have 16 variables of "Ref" type, (Like  ref string PstrVP1, ref string PstrVP2, ref string PstrVP3)

  "PstrVP" + i = LstrCurrentVP + LstrPriorVP;


   for (int i = 1; i <= 16; i++)
                {
                    string LstrCurrentVP = string.Empty;
                    string LstrPriorVP = string.Empty;

                    MethodInfo buildVP = this.GetType().GetMethod("BuildVP" + i + "Str");

                    LstrCurrentVP = (string)buildVP.Invoke(this, new object[] { LobjCurrentVehiclePremiumsList, LstrCurrentVP, "Current" });
                    LstrPriorVP = (string)buildVP.Invoke(this, new object[] { LobjCurrentVehiclePremiumsList, LstrCurrentVP, "Prior" });

                    "PstrVP" + i = LstrCurrentVP + LstrPriorVP;

                   
                }

Please help...

It's best to create an array in this case.
string[] PstrVP = new string[17];

for (int i = 1; i <= 16; i++)
{
    string LstrCurrentVP = string.Empty;
    string LstrPriorVP = string.Empty;

    MethodInfo buildVP = this.GetType().GetMethod("BuildVP" + i + "Str");

    LstrCurrentVP = (string)buildVP.Invoke(this, new object[] { LobjCurrentVehiclePremiumsList, LstrCurrentVP, "Current" });
    LstrPriorVP = (string)buildVP.Invoke(this, new object[] { LobjCurrentVehiclePremiumsList, LstrCurrentVP, "Prior" });

    PstrVP[i] = LstrCurrentVP + LstrPriorVP;
}

Or
string[] PstrVP = new string[16];

for (int i = 1; i <= 16; i++)
{
    string LstrCurrentVP = string.Empty;
    string LstrPriorVP = string.Empty;

    MethodInfo buildVP = this.GetType().GetMethod("BuildVP" + i + "Str");

    LstrCurrentVP = (string)buildVP.Invoke(this, new object[] { LobjCurrentVehiclePremiumsList, LstrCurrentVP, "Current" });
    LstrPriorVP = (string)buildVP.Invoke(this, new object[] { LobjCurrentVehiclePremiumsList, LstrCurrentVP, "Prior" });

    PstrVP[i - 1] = LstrCurrentVP + LstrPriorVP;
}
