ICustomAttributeProvider.GetCustomAttributes Method (Type, Boolean)

Returns an array of custom attributes defined on this member, identified by type, or an empty array if there are no custom attributes of that type.

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

Object[] GetCustomAttributes (
	Type attributeType,
	bool inherit
)
Object[] GetCustomAttributes (
	Type attributeType, 
	boolean inherit
)
function GetCustomAttributes (
	attributeType : Type, 
	inherit : boolean
) : Object[]

Parameters

attributeType

The type of the custom attributes.

inherit

When true, look up the hierarchy chain for the inherited custom attribute.

Return Value

An array of Objects representing custom attributes, or an empty array.
Exception typeCondition

TypeLoadException

The custom attribute type cannot be loaded.

AmbiguousMatchException

There is more than one attribute of type attributeType defined on this member.

If attributeType is a base class or interface, this method returns any implementation of that type.

This method returns custom attributes defined directly on a non-inherited member only.

Calling ICustomAttributeProvider.GetCustomAttributes on PropertyInfo or EventInfo when the inherit parameter of GetCustomAttributes is true does not walk the type hierarchy. Use System.Attribute to inherit custom attributes.
