C# and Reflection don't work twice in a row

I've a problem and I can't figured it out how to solve it.

I've a class for fetching data from a Database, in this class I've a method for a simple select * this method is called

List<T> All<T>(string tableName)

and you have to specify which resource you want to fetch, for example


And, aside from the classic SQL Reader and SQL Command, the core of the method is this

public override List<T> All<T>(string resource) 
        List<T> result = new List<T>();
        using (MySqlConnection sqlConnection = new MySqlConnection(connectionString))
                string query = "SELECT * FROM " + resource + " WHERE 1=1";
                using (MySqlCommand sqlCommand = new MySqlCommand(query, sqlConnection))
                    lock (locker)
                        MySqlDataReader reader = sqlCommand.ExecuteReader();
                        if (reader.HasRows)
                            while (reader.Read())
                                T model = Activator.CreateInstance<T>();
                                Dictionary<string, object> _properties = new Dictionary<string, object>();
                                for (int i = 0; i < reader.FieldCount; i++)
                                    string property = reader.GetName(i);
                                    object value = reader.GetValue(i);
                                    _properties.Add(property, value);
                                var type = model.GetType();
                                var method = type.GetMethod("SetProperties");
                                var invo

The result of:

var invoked = method.Invoke(model, new object[] { _properties });

Is the return value from your SetProperties method, not whether the method was invoked as your question indicates. Your SetProperties method is telling you that it was unable to do its work, debug that and you will find your answer.
