The Programming Reference Help for Reflection for IBM includes help topics for each of Reflection for IBM's methods and properties. It also provides a list of Reflection's error constants and messages.

You can use Reflection's methods and properties to develop macros using Reflection Visual Basic or you can use them to control Reflection through Automation from other programming environments (such as stand-alone Visual Basic, Microsoft Office products, or any programming environment that supports Automation). Reflection also continues to support the use of these methods and properties in Reflection Basic.

Tip: As you develop procedures in the Editor, you can get help on any keywords by positioning the insertion point on the keyword and pressing F1. This will open a help topic for that keyword.

If you are working using VBA in a different application, or you are using stand-alone Visual Basic, you can also get quick help with Reflection commands by pressing F1 if you have added the Reflection Object library to your References using the References command on the Tools menu.

Note: If you have used earlier versions of Reflection and have elected to continue to use Reflection Basic and the Reflection Basic Editor, you can continue to access Reflection's methods and properties using Reflection Basic.
