Namespace Westwind.Utilities

This topic tree describes the Westwind.Utilities namespace.

TypeDescription
  DataUtils Utility library for common data operations.
  DebugUtils DebugUtils class contains various utility methods for debugging and diagnostic tasks
  DelegateFactory This class creates a generic method delegate from a MethodInfo signature converting the method call into a LateBoundMethod delegate call. Using this class allows making repeated calls very quickly. Note: this class will be very inefficient for individual dynamic method calls - compilation of the expression is very expensive up front, so using this delegate factory makes sense only if you re-use the dynamicly loaded method
  Encryption that provides a number of encryption utilities.
  Expando that provides extensible properties and methods to an existing object when cast to dynamic. This dynamic object stores 'extra' properties in a dictionary or checks the actual properties of the instance passed via constructor. This class can be subclassed to extend an existing type or you can pass in an instance to extend. Properties (both dynamic and strongly typed) can be accessed through an indexer. This type allows you three ways
  FileUtils wwUtils class which contains a set of common utility classes for Formatting strings Reflection Helpers Object Serialization Stream Manipulation
  GenericUtils
  HtmlUtils Html string and formatting utilities
  HttpRequestSettings Configuration object for Http Requests used by the HttpUtils methods. Allows you to set the URL, verb, headers proxy and credentials that are then passed to the HTTP client.
  HttpUtils Simple HTTP request helper to let you retrieve data from a Web server and convert it to something useful.
  HttpUtilsWebClient Customized version of WebClient that provides access to the Response object so we can read result data from the Response.
  ImageUtils Summary description for wwImaging.
  JsonSerializationUtils JSON Serialization helper class that uses JSON.NET. This class serializes JSON to and from string and files on disk.
  LanguageUtils
  NetworkUtils
  ObjectFactory An object factory that can create instances of types for Http Web Request and Thread Scoped object objects and value types.
  PropertyBag Creates a serializable string/object dictionary that is XML serializable Encodes keys as element names and values as simple values with a type attribute that contains an XML type name. Complex names encode the type name with type='___namespace.classname' format followed by a standard xml serialized format. The latter serialization can be slow so it's not recommended to pass complex types if performance is critical.

  ReflectionUtils Collection of Reflection and type conversion related utility functions
  Scheduler A generic scheduling service that runs on a background thread and fires events in a given check frequency.
  SchedulerItem A simple item wrapper that allows separating items by type.
  SecurityUtils A set of utilities functions related to security.
  SerializationUtils
  ShellUtils Windows specific shell utility functions
  StringSerializer A very simple flat object serializer that can be used for intra application serialization. It creates a very compact positional string of properties. Only serializes top level properties, with no nesting support and only simple properties or those with a type converter are supported. Complex properties or non-two way type convertered values are ignored. Creates strings in the format of: Rick|rstrahl@west-wind.com|1|True|3/29/2013 1:32:31 PM|1
  StringUtils String utility class that provides a host of string related operations
  TimeUtils Time Utilities class provides date and time related routines.
  UrlEncodingParser A query string or UrlEncoded form parser and editor class that allows reading and writing of urlencoded key value pairs used for query string and HTTP form data. Useful for parsing and editing querystrings inside of non-Web code that doesn't have easy access to the HttpUtility class.
  UrlParser Internally used class that is used to expand links in text strings.
  ValidationError Object that holds a single Validation Error for the business object
  ValidationErrorCollection A collection of ValidationError objects that is used to collect errors that occur duing calls to the Validate method.
  WindowsUtils Windows specific system and information helpers Helper class that provides Windows and .NET Version numbers.
  XmlUtils String utility class that provides a host of string related operations
  LateBoundMethod LateBoundMethod is a generic method signature that is passed an instance and an array of parameters and returns an object. It basically can be used to call any method.
  DataAccessProviderTypes
  DateTimeResolution
  LineFeedTypes
  ObjectToStringTypes
  RoundingDirection Determines how date time values are rounded
  TerminalModes
