The AgileCoding.Extensions.Activator is a .NET library that provides extension methods for the System.Type class and the System.Exception class. These extension methods are mainly designed to assist with creating instances of types using the Activator.CreateInstance method and handling exceptions thrown by the .NET Reflection API.


This library is available as a NuGet package. You can install it using the NuGet package manager console:

bashCopy code

Install-Package AgileCoding.Extensions.Activator -Version 2.0.5


The library provides two main features:

  1. Creating instances of types with detailed error logging: The CreateInstanceWithLogging extension method can be used to create an instance of a type. If there are any issues during the creation of the instance, the method logs detailed error information.

  2. Creating instances of types without detailed error logging: The CreateInstanceWithoutLogging extension method can be used to create an instance of a type without logging detailed error information.

  3. Handling Reflection API Exceptions: The ToStringAll extension method can be used to convert an exception to a string representation. This is particularly useful for handling exceptions thrown by the .NET Reflection API.


Here's a brief overview of how you can use these features in your code:

using System;
using AgileCoding.Extentions.Activators;
using AgileCoding.Library.Interfaces.Logging;

// Suppose 'logger' is an instance of a class implementing the ILogger interface.

Type myType = typeof(MyClass);
var instance = myType.CreateInstanceWithLogging<IMyInterface>(logger, constructorParameter1, constructorParameter2);

// ...

    // Some code that can throw exceptions.
catch (Exception ex)
    string errorDetails = ex.ToStringAll();
