Get web part assembly name and type name from SharePoint web part gallery

Today i was trying create to custom webpart preview page as test canvas for site admins. For this i wanted to add webpart on fly.  We need few properties like web part type name and web part assembly name for this.

string webPartTitle = " Content Editor Web Part";
string webPartTypeName = string.Empty;
string webPartAssemblyName = string.Empty;

SPList wpGallery = SPContext.Current.Site.GetCatalog(SPListTemplateType.WebPartCatalog);

SPQuery wpQuery = new SPQuery();

wpQuery.Query = @"<Where><Eq><FieldRef Name='Title' /><Value Type='Text'>" + webPartTitle + "</Value></Eq></Where>";
SPListItemCollection items = wpGallery.GetItems(wpQuery);

if (items != null && items.Count > 0)
       webPartTypeName = items[0]["WebPartTypeName"].ToString();
       webPartAssemblyName = items[0]["WebPartAssembly"].ToString();

Some other useful properties are below

- WebPartDescription
- WebPartPartImageLarge
- LinkWebPart
- WebPartIcon
- Group
- QuickAddGroups
