SwitchAttribute Class

Note: This class is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Identifies a switch used in an assembly, class, or member.

Namespace: System.Diagnostics
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly|AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Constructor|AttributeTargets.Method|AttributeTargets.Property|AttributeTargets.Event)] 
public sealed class SwitchAttribute : Attribute
/** @attribute AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly|AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Constructor|AttributeTargets.Method|AttributeTargets.Property|AttributeTargets.Event) */ 
public final class SwitchAttribute extends Attribute
AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly|AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Constructor|AttributeTargets.Method|AttributeTargets.Property|AttributeTargets.Event) 
public final class SwitchAttribute extends Attribute

A SwitchAttribute attribute can be used on an assembly, class, constructor, method, property, or event.

The SwitchAttribute attribute can be used by tools that inspect an assembly for configuration settings.

The following code example shows the use of a SwitchAttribute attribute to identify the switch used in an assembly. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the TraceSource class.

[SwitchAttribute("SourceSwitch", typeof(SourceSwitch))]
static void Main()

System.Object
   System.Attribute
    System.Diagnostics.SwitchAttribute
