Description Wade 2017-07-05 13:09:59 UTC
The method Assembly is not found on the type System.Reflection.TypeInfo.

This method is very useful when using reflection to automatically load types.

For instance, this code finds and loads all configuration types for the popular AutoMapper library

    var profiles = GetType()
        .DefinedTypes.Where(t => t.IsClass && typeof(Profile).GetTypeInfo().IsAssignableFrom(t))
    var config = new MapperConfiguration(c =>
                     foreach (var pti in profiles)

To reproduce, create a Forms project and the following code inthe App constr

    var a = GetType().Assembly();

The exact error is `Method `Assembly' not found in type `NInterpret.InterpretedClrType'.`

The code looks reproducible, however we really need small sample.

So, I am not sure where you put that code as that is not valid when I add it into my app.

I did this: var a = GetType().Assembly;

and it worked just fine... I am using shared projects here. This is what small samples are best to attach so we know exactly what you are doing.

FreshIOC had included a static class under the System.Reflection namespace, leading me to believe it was an official API.
