What would be the best way of getting the type of items a generic list contains? It's easy enough to grab the first item in the collection and call .GetType(), but I can't always be sure there will be an item in the collection.
Hope that makes sense.
You could use the
Type.GetGenericArguments method for this purpose.
List<Foo> myList = ... Type myListElementType = myList.GetType().GetGenericArguments().Single();
