MethodBase.Attributes Property

Gets the attributes associated with this method.

[Visual Basic]
Public MustOverride ReadOnly Property Attributes As _
   MethodAttributes
[C#]
public abstract MethodAttributes Attributes {get;}
[C++]
public: __property virtual MethodAttributes get_Attributes() = 0;
[JScript]
public abstract function get Attributes() : MethodAttributes;

Property Value

One of the MethodAttributes values.

Remarks

All members have a set of attributes, which are defined in relation to the specific type of member.

To get the MethodAttributes, first get the type. From the type, get the method. From the method, get the MethodAttributes.

Notes to Implementers:  Use the Attributes property to determine whether a method is public, private, final, virtual (Overridable in Visual Basic), and so on.

Example

The following code example displays the attributes of the user-defined method Mymethod.

Imports System.Reflection
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic
