ContractClassAttribute Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the ContractClassAttribute class.

Namespace:  System.Diagnostics.Contracts
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public ContractClassAttribute(
	Type typeContainingContracts
)

Parameters

typeContainingContracts
Type: System.Type

The type that contains the code contracts for this type.

The following example shows how to use the ContractClassAttribute constructor to specify that the contracts for the IArray interface are contained in the IArrayContracts class.

using System;
using System.Diagnostics.Contracts;

// An IArray is an ordered collection of objects.    
[ContractClass(typeof(IArrayContract))]
public interface IArray
{
    // The Item property provides methods to read and edit entries in the array.
    Object this[int index]
    {
        get;
        set;
    }

    int Count
    {
        get;

    }

    // Adds an item to the list.   
    // The return value is the position the new element was inserted in. 
    int Add(Object value);

    // Removes all items from the list. 
    void Clear();

    // Inserts value into the array at position index. 
    // index must be non-negative and less than or equal to the  
    // number of elements in the array.  If index equals the number 
    // of items in the array, then value is appended to the end. 
    void Insert(int index, Object value);


    // Removes the item at position index. 
    void RemoveAt(int index);
}

[ContractClassFor(typeof(IArray))]
internal abstract class IArrayContract : IArray
{
    int IArray.Add(Object value)
    {
        // Returns the index in which an item was inserted.
        Contract.Ensures(Contract.Result<int>() >= -1);
        Contract.Ensures(Contract.Result<int>() < ((IArray)this).Count);
        return default(int);
    }
    Object IArray.this[int index]
    {
        get
        {
            Contract.Requires(index >= 0);
            Contract.Requires(index < ((IArray)this).Count);
            return default(int);
        }
        set
        {
            Contract.Requires(index >= 0);
            Contract.Requires(index < ((IArray)this).Count);
        }
    }
    public int Count
    {
        get
        {
            Contract.Requires(Count >= 0);
            Contract.Requires(Count <= ((IArray)this).Count);
            return default(int);
        }
    }

    void IArray.Clear()
    {
        Contract.Ensures(((IArray)this).Count == 0);
    }

    void IArray.Insert(int index, Object value)
    {
        Contract.Requires(index >= 0);
        Contract.Requires(index <= ((IArray)this).Count);  // For inserting immediately after the end.
        Contract.Ensures(((IArray)this).Count == Contract.OldValue(((IArray)this).Count) + 1);
    }

    void IArray.RemoveAt(int index)
    {
        Contract.Requires(index >= 0);
        Contract.Requires(index < ((IArray)this).Count);
        Contract.Ensures(((IArray)this).Count == Contract.OldValue(((IArray)this).Count) - 1);
    }
