reflection
Last modified: Monday, March 10, 2003 

A feature of attribute-based programming that allows an application to query its own metadata. Reflection allows an application to discover information about itself so that it may display this information to the user, modify its own behavior by using late-binding and dynamic invocation (i.e., binding to and calling methods at runtime), or create new data types at runtime.
