How to get the PageTypeName property without creating a page instance

In a project we’re currently working on here at Nansen we stumbled upon the need to get the name of a page type without having an actual reference to page of that type.

Since we’re using Joel’s PageTypeBuilder, getting the name was a simple task of reflecting the PageTypeAttributes object.

public static string GetPageTypeName<T>() where T : TypedPageData
    System.Reflection.MemberInfo memberInfo = typeof(T);
    object[] attributes =  memberInfo.GetCustomAttributes(typeof(PageTypeAttribute), false); 
    if (attributes.Count() > 0)
        PageTypeAttribute pta = attributes.First() as PageTypeAttribute;
        return pta.Name;
    return string.Empty;
