I had a need of using the reflection to go through different properties of a class and examine if it is a nullable type.
I have learned an interesting thing that GetType() method upon the property would not let us know if it is a nullable type. Moreover, there is no direct method in reflection to check that up, (like IsVisible or IsValueType).
I found an interesting write up from MSDN that explained the issues I faced and posted a solution to it as well.
How to: Identify a Nullable Type (C# Programming Guide)
The following code lets us know if it is a Nullable type. But before that we need to get the type from non-GetType() way.
foreach (var property in typeof(Request).GetProperties())
Type type = property.PropertyType;
//Check the value of non nullable fields
if (type.Is.IsGenericType && type.GetGenericTypeDefinition() == typeof(Nullable<>))

I tried to use multiple fieldsets and encountered a lot of alignment issues. I did a lot of changes in the CSS to fix it. I could only minimize the issues but couldn’t avoid it completely.
So I have come up with a replacement of Fieldset using Div and Span (of course I got the idea from StackOverflow, and I modified it according to my need).
I embedded my content in the following elements
<span class="legend">Project Manager</span>
<p> My Content
In the css file I added the following styles.
border: 1px solid #ddd;
background: #fff; padding: 5px 10px;
This was a lot stable in alignment when compared to Fieldset. With this I am not complaining the Fieldset, its a lot neater way to group things. But I couldn’t figure out the fix to the alignment issues. So this one is a temporary replacement to the fieldset.
