using System;
using System.Reflection;

namespace ConsoleApplication1
internal class FieldInfoSpy
private static void Main(string[] args)
Type type
= typeof (Car);

//query type
FieldInfo[] fieldInfos = type.GetFields(
//Specifies that instance members are to be included in the search.
BindingFlags.Instance |
//Specifies that non-public members are to be included in the search.
BindingFlags.NonPublic |
//Specifies that public members are to be included in the search.
BindingFlags.Public |
//Specifies that static members are to be included in the search.

foreach (FieldInfo fieldInfo in fieldInfos)


internal class Car
public bool broken;
private static string vendor;
public readonly string owner;
private int age;
protected string name;
