DefaultCharSetAttribute Class

Specifies the value of the CharSet enumeration. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.Runtime.InteropServices
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] 
[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Module, Inherited=false)] 
public sealed class DefaultCharSetAttribute : Attribute
/** @attribute ComVisibleAttribute(true) */ 
/** @attribute AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Module, Inherited=false) */ 
public final class DefaultCharSetAttribute extends Attribute
ComVisibleAttribute(true) 
AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Module, Inherited=false) 
public final class DefaultCharSetAttribute extends Attribute
Not applicable.

Apply the DefaultCharSetAttribute attribute at the assembly level or module level to set the CharSet value for any call to DllImportAttribute that does not include a CharSet named argument specified by the user.

A CharSet named argument specified by the user overrides the setting of DefaultCharSetAttribute.

NoteNote:

Only the C# and Visual Basic compilers recognize this attribute; it is not used by the C++ compiler.

The following code example changes the default CharSet value from Ansi to Auto.

using System.Runtime.InteropServices;

[module: DefaultCharSet(CharSet.Auto)]

// …

System.Object
   System.Attribute
    System.Runtime.InteropServices.DefaultCharSetAttribute
