Part IV was generated using .NET’s reflection API (described in Chapter 13). Using reflection, we drilled down into selected classes, structs, enums, delegates, and interfaces from the Framework Class Library, and extracted detailed information on each type and its members. Next, we structured this information as DocBook XML, which we used to generate the printed pages.
Each detailed type listing is accompanied by one or more paragraphs describing the type and its significant members. These descriptions offer an overview of how you can use the type in your own applications and describe related types, pitfalls, and useful features.
