AssemblyKeyNameAttribute Class

Specifies the name of a key container within the CSP containing the key pair used to generate a strong name.

Namespace: System.Reflection
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly, Inherited=false)] 
public sealed class AssemblyKeyNameAttribute : Attribute
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
/** @attribute AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly, Inherited=false) */ 
public final class AssemblyKeyNameAttribute extends Attribute
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly, Inherited=false) 
public final class AssemblyKeyNameAttribute extends Attribute

When building a strong-named assembly, the author must supply either this attribute or AssemblyKeyFileAttribute.

An example of the syntax is [assembly:AssemblyKeyNameAttribute("myContainer")].

The classes in System.Runtime.CompilerServices are intended for use by compilers only. Do not use them unless you are building a compiler.
