nonbrowsable attribute

Use the [nonbrowsable] attribute to tag an interface or dispinterface member that should not be displayed in a properties browser.


[property-attribute-list, nonbrowsable]return-type property-name(prop-param-list)

Parameters

property-attribute-list

Other attributes that apply to the property.

return-type

The type of the data returned by the method.

property-name

The name of the property or method.

prop-param-list

Zero or more parameters to be passed to the method.

Remarks

Certain properties should not be displayed in a properties browser. This may be because retrieving the value would take a very long time. The example prevents the user from attempting to retrieve the Count property, which returns the number of rows in the dynaset.This number may represent the results of a very large query.

Other properties may have unexpected effects on the browser. For example, consider a control with the property "IsSelected" to tell whether the control is selected. If "IsSelected" is set to false, a selection-based properties browser will browse a different object.

Note that a property tagged as [nonbrowsable] will still appear in an object browser, which does not show property values.

Typeflag Representation

The presence of FUNCFLAG_FNONBROWSABLE or VARFLAG_FNONBROWSABLE.

Examples

[
    dual,
    uuid(12345678-1234-1234-1234-123456789ABC),
    restricted
]
interface IDynaset:IDispatch
{
    [propget, nonbrowsable]HRESULT Count([out, retval] long *Value);
}
