  NameDescription
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetIDsOfNamesMaps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetTypeInfoRetrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCountRetrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.InvokeProvides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

This attribute can be used at the assembly level. Typically the attribute constructors take two types. The two types are a visualizer and a visualizer object source, specified as types or as fully qualified assembly type names. The second option is provided so that the visualizer assembly does not need to be referenced by the assembly containing the DebuggerVisualizerAttribute. This allows a component creator to ship the visualizer in a DLL to be called only at debug time. The Description property specifies the visualizer description that appears in the drop-down box. The target parameters specify the type that is the target of the visualizer. For more information about visualizers, see Visualizers.

NoteNote

Visualizer and visualizer object source implementation is dependent upon the hosting debugger. For information on creating a visualizer for Visual Studio 2005, see How to: Write a Visualizer.
