Identifies code generated by a tool. This class cannot be inherited.

System.Object
  System.Attribute
    System.CodeDom.Compiler.GeneratedCodeAttribute

Namespace:  System.CodeDom.Compiler
Assemblies:   System (in System.dll)
  System.Diagnostics.Tools (in System.Diagnostics.Tools.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.All, Inherited = false, AllowMultiple = false)]
public sealed class GeneratedCodeAttribute : Attribute

The GeneratedCodeAttribute type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription

  NameDescription
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkSupported by Portable Class LibrarySupported in .NET for Windows Store appsToolGets the name of the tool that generated the code.
Public propertyTypeIdWhen implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)

  NameDescription
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetIDsOfNamesMaps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)

The GeneratedCodeAttribute class can be used by code analysis tools to identify computer-generated code, and to provide an analysis based on the tool and the version of the tool that generated the code.

The following code example shows the use of the GeneratedCodeAttribute class to identify computer-generated code.

using System;
using System.CodeDom;
using System.CodeDom.Compiler;

public class CodeGenExample
{
    static void Main()
    {
        // Declare a new type called Class1.
        CodeTypeDeclaration class1 = new CodeTypeDeclaration("Class1");

        // Declare a new generated code attribute
        GeneratedCodeAttribute generatedCodeAttribute =
            new GeneratedCodeAttribute("SampleCodeGenerator", "2.0.0.0");

        // Use the generated code attribute members in the attribute declaration
        CodeAttributeDeclaration codeAttrDecl =
            new CodeAttributeDeclaration(generatedCodeAttribute.GetType().Name,
                new CodeAttributeArgument(
                    new CodePrimitiveExpression(generatedCodeAttribute.Tool)),
                new CodeAttributeArgument(
                    new CodePrimitiveExpression(generatedCodeAttribute.Version)));
        class1.CustomAttributes.Add(codeAttrDecl);

        // Create a C# code provider
        CodeDomProvider provider = CodeDomProvider.CreateProvider("CSharp");

        // Generate code and send the output to the console
        provider.GenerateCodeFromType(class1, Console.Out, new CodeGeneratorOptions());
    }
}

// The C# code generator produces the following source code for the preceeding example code: 
// 
// [GeneratedCodeAttribute("SampleCodeGenerator", "2.0.0.0")]
// public class Class1 { 
// }
