Type: System.Reflection.PropertyAttributes

This property represents the attributes associated with a member. All members have a set of attributes that are defined in relation to the specific type of member. The property attributes let the user know if this property is the default property, a SpecialName property, and so on.

The following example displays the attributes of the specified property.

Public Class Myproperty
    Private myCaption As String = "Default caption" 

    Public Property Caption() As String 
            Return myCaption
        End Get 
        Set(ByVal Value As String)
            If myCaption <> value Then
                myCaption = value
            End If 
        End Set 
    End Property 
End Class 'Myproperty

    Public Shared Function Main() As Integer
        Console.WriteLine(ControlChars.CrLf & "Reflection.PropertyInfo")

        ' Define a property.

        Console.Write(ControlChars.CrLf & "Myproperty.Caption = " & _

        ' Get the type and PropertyInfo. 
        Dim MyType As Type = Type.GetType("Myproperty")
        Dim Mypropertyinfo As PropertyInfo = MyType.GetProperty("Caption")

        ' Get and display the attributes property. 
        Dim Myattributes As PropertyAttributes = Mypropertyinfo.Attributes

        Console.Write(ControlChars.CrLf & "PropertyAttributes - " & _
