XpoTypesInfoHelper.GetTypesInfo() Method

Returns metadata information on types used in an XAF application.

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Xpo

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Xpo.v21.1.dll

Declaration

public static ITypesInfo GetTypesInfo()

Returns

Type Description
ITypesInfo

An ITypesInfo object supplying metadata on types used in an XAF application.

Remarks

Since the GetTypesInfo method is static, you can call in from any appropriate context. However, it is recommended to call the XpoTypesInfoHelper.ForceInitialize method before using GetTypesInfo, because the required metadata information may be not initialized yet.

using DevExpress.ExpressApp.DC;
using DevExpress.ExpressApp.Xpo;
// ...
XpoTypesInfoHelper.ForceInitialize();
ITypesInfo typesInfo = XpoTypesInfoHelper.GetTypesInfo();

Refer to the How to: Use XAF Reports in a non-XAF Application topic to see an example on how to use the GetTypesInfo method.
