Overloaded CLR indexers not supported ("Item" property)


When having multiple indexers in a class, Jint just selects the one that happens to come first when enumerating available properties. The proposed patch fixes this by first attempting to let the runtime resolve the property directly using the Type.GetProperty() method (CachedReflectionPropertyGetter.cs). Also included is a change to ExecutionVisitor.cs that adds support for renamed default members (i.e. when the indexer property name is not "Item").

Example broken code:

using System;
using System.Text;
using Jint;

namespace jinttest
public enum TestEnum
    One = 1,
    Two = 2,
    Three = 3

public class Test
    public string this[string str]
        get { return "StringIndexer - " + str; }

    public string this[TestEnum num]
        get { return "EnumIndexer - " + num.ToString(); }

class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
        object result;

        JintEngine engine = new JintEngine();
        engine.AllowClr = true;

        StringBuilder program = new StringBuilder();

        program.AppendLine("var o = new jinttest.Test();");
        program.AppendLine("return o[jinttest.TestEnum.Two];");

        result = engine.Run(program.ToString());

Jint has been rewritten and this issue should be fixed in the new version. Please check it on or on using the nuget package here:

Which source did you use to build this patch on. This issue should already be addressed in the last source version on the svn repository.

It's based on the latest (?) trunk, revision 209. Should I be using some other branch in order to get the latest changes?
