When trying to find out what a DLL does, and what methods it has inside, us ColdFusioneers were at a bit of a loss. There is almost zero experience in this world in our team. Until we came across this very handy tool Lutz Reflector. Simply, it introspects dll files and .NET components for you, giving you information about methods and arguments. On its own this isn’t the most help but can give you a leg up when you need it. Most components would come with some documentation, but even that can lack detail. Here is the highlight blurb from the site:

  • Explore .NET assemblies in an easy-to-understand, natural way
  • Understand the relationships between classes and methods
  • Find where types are instantiated and exposed
  • Check that your code has been correctly obfuscated before release
