"Reflections" Documentation?

Recommended Posts

Any sources or docs were I can find out how to use reflections? I keep reading its a better option than access transformers but cant find anything on it. I also am seeing "@override" in source code for other mods, but I do not know if that is Reflections or something else entirely. I need to be able to change a private function to something else.

 

Sub-Question (I don't really need to know more of a want to know): is there a way to get a live object created from a class from another mod?

Reflection is a java concept, as such there's no documentation here. ObfuscationReflectionHelper is a forge added class as a wrapper to deal with changing method names due to mappings. However, this has full javadocs.

Sure, a registered object can be grabbed from the associated registry. Although you might want to add that mod as a dependency (either hard or soft) to better handle that case.

A good way to do this is to simply store a RegistryObject in a static final field using its of factory method.

Apparently I'm a complete and utter jerk and come to this forum just like to make fun of people, be confrontational, and make your personal life miserable.  If you think this is the case, JUST REPORT ME.  Otherwise you're just going to get reported when you reply to my posts and point it out, because odds are, I was trying to be nice.

 

Exception: If you do not understand Java, I WILL NOT HELP YOU and your thread will get locked.

 

DO NOT PM ME WITH PROBLEMS. No help will be given.
