Summary:  Starting from the question of what are the possible values of the constant of hyperreflexivity for subspaces of $\mathcal B(H)$, where H is a separable complex Hilbert space, the paper considers the continuity of the function $\kappa {\rm{ : }} \mathcal B(H) \to \bar R$, defined by $\kappa(T) = K(\mathcal A_w (T)), \mathcal A_w (T)) denoting the unital weakly closed algebra generated by T. As a consequence, it is shown that any number bigger than or equal to one is a constant of hyperreflexivity of a subspace. Besides several results concerning the continuity of the function $\kappa$, the paper contains also more general results, like those determining the closures (in the norm topology) or the set of reflexive, respectively non-reflexive, operators.
