Generics reflection and instantiation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am writing a custom serializer and I need to serialize IEnumerable<> objects in a special way.

    Write now I am checking if the object is generic and implements the old IEnumerable, e.g.:

    IEnumerable enumer = (IEnumerable)obj;
    Type expected = obj.GetGenericArguments()[0];
    foreach(object o in enumer) {
              return false;

    Is it possible to emit/generate using reflection code that works with the specific generic types to increase performance?
