typeof(OpenGenericType<,>) in cobra

Postby gauthier » Sat Jan 09, 2010 9:05 am

how do I express open generic type System.Type initializers?

I could do that with c#:

Code: Select all
var opengenerictype = typeof(OpenGenericType<,>);


is there something similar in cobra?

The general Cobra format is "t = TYPE" such as "t = String" or "t = List<of int>". As you discovered, "t = List<of>" or "t = Dictionary<of,>" is not currently supported.

Can you fill out a ticket for that?

In the meantime, here is a workaround:
t = sharp'typeof(System.Collections.Generic.List<>)' to Type
trace t

Hi Chuck, I just created ticket 192.

This feature is particulary usefull in IOC container setup via API or for easy type filtering

Btw this was fixed some time ago after the ticket was created. Thanks for the report.
