DefaultMemberAttribute Class

Defines the member of a type that is the default member used by InvokeMember.

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

[SerializableAttribute] 
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Struct|AttributeTargets.Interface)] 
public sealed class DefaultMemberAttribute : Attribute
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
/** @attribute AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Struct|AttributeTargets.Interface) */ 
public final class DefaultMemberAttribute extends Attribute
SerializableAttribute 
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Struct|AttributeTargets.Interface) 
public final class DefaultMemberAttribute extends Attribute

A property is imported as an indexer (default indexed property in Visual Basic) if the property has arguments and if the name of the property or one of its accessors matches the name specified by the DefaultMemberAttribute. If the DefaultMemberAttribute is not present on the containing type, then the type does not have an indexer. The C# compiler emits the DefaultMemberAttribute on any type containing an indexer. In C# it is an error to manually attribute a type with the DefaultMemberAttribute if the type also declares an indexer.
