SetProperty - Setting a property via reflection

' Set a property via reflection and return True if successful
' Example: SetProperty(Button1, "Text", "Click me")

Function SetProperty(ByVal obj As Object, ByVal propertyName As String, _
    ByVal val As Object) As Boolean
        ' get a reference to the PropertyInfo, exit if no property with that 
        ' name
        Dim pi As System.Reflection.PropertyInfo = obj.GetType().GetProperty _
        If pi Is Nothing Then Return False
        ' convert the value to the expected type
        val = Convert.ChangeType(val, pi.PropertyType)
        ' attempt the assignment
        pi.SetValue(obj, val, Nothing)
        Return True
        Return False
    End Try
End Function
