FilterableAttribute Class

Specifies whether the property to which the attribute is applied supports device filtering. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace: System.Web.UI
Assembly: System.Web (in system.web.dll)
[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Property)] 
public sealed class FilterableAttribute : Attribute
/** @attribute AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Property) */ 
public final class FilterableAttribute extends Attribute
AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Property) 
public final class FilterableAttribute extends Attribute
Not applicable.

The FilterableAttribute attribute is applied to a property to specify whether the property supports device filtering. When a property supports device filtering, you can override the value of a property for a specific device by specifying a device filter. By default, properties are filterable, so a control developer could prevent device filtering on a property by setting the FilterableAttribute attribute to false. For more information, see Customizing for Specific Devices.

For more information about using attributes, see Extending Metadata Using Attributes.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of the FilterableAttribute class, see the FilterableAttribute constructor.

The following code example demonstrates how to apply a FilterableAttribute attribute to a property of a custom control to indicate that the property does not support device filtering.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Text;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

namespace Samples.AspNet.CS.Controls
{
    public class SimpleCustomControl : WebControl
    {
        private string _productID;

        // Set Filterable attribute to specify that this
        // property does not support device filtering.
        [Bindable(true)]
        [Filterable(false)]
        public string ProductID
        {
            get
            {
                return _productID;
            }
            set
            {
                _productID = value;
            }
        }
    }
}
