MethodBase.Attributes Property

Gets the attributes associated with this method.

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

public abstract MethodAttributes Attributes { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection.MethodAttributes
One of the MethodAttributes values.

Implements

_MethodBase.Attributes

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, and so on.

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

using System;
using System.Reflection;

class AttributesSample
{
    public void Mymethod (int int1m, out string str2m, ref string str3m)
    {
        str2m = "in Mymethod";
    }

    public static int Main(string[] args)
    {      
        Console.WriteLine ("Reflection.MethodBase.Attributes Sample");

        // Get the type.
        Type MyType = Type.GetType("AttributesSample");

        // Get the method Mymethod on the type.
        MethodBase Mymethodbase = MyType.GetMethod("Mymethod");

        // Display the method name.
        Console.WriteLine("Mymethodbase = " + Mymethodbase);

        // Get the MethodAttribute enumerated value.
        MethodAttributes Myattributes = Mymethodbase.Attributes;

        // Display the flags that are set.
        PrintAttributes(typeof(System.Reflection.MethodAttributes), (int) Myattributes);
        return 0;
    }


    public static void PrintAttributes(Type attribType, int iAttribValue)
    {
        if (!attribType.IsEnum)
        { 
            Console.WriteLine("This type is not an enum."); 
            return; 
        }

        FieldInfo[] fields = attribType.GetFields(BindingFlags.Public | BindingFlags.Static);
        for (int i = 0; i < fields.Length; i++)
        {
            int fieldvalue = (Int32)fields[i].GetValue(null);
            if ((fieldvalue & iAttribValue) == fieldvalue)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(fields[i].Name);
            }
        }
    }
}

This code produces the following output:

Reflection.MethodBase.Attributes Sample

Mymethodbase = Void Mymethod(Int32, System.String ByRef, System.String ByRef)
