Type t = Customer.GetType();

      FieldInfo field= t.GetField("_cutomerOrder",

        BindingFlags.Instance | BindingFlags.Public | BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Static);

CSLA 3.0 didn't have the field manager. You must be using 3.6 or higher?

The purpose of the field manager is to help you (and me) avoid the use of reflection for things like this. There's a method on the field manager that will give you a list of the child properties in your business object.

The child object can ask its field manager for its list of properties, and that list can be returned through an internal method.

That would allow the parent to get a list of the child object's properties without using any reflection at all.
