Attributes (Visual Basic)

Visual Basic provides several attributes that allow objects interoperate with unmanaged code, and one attribute that enables module members to be accessed without the module name. The following table lists the attributes used by Visual Basic.

ComClassAttribute

Instructs the compiler to add metadata that allows a class to be exposed as a COM object.

HideModuleNameAttribute

Allows the module members to be accessed using only the qualification needed for the module.

VBFixedArrayAttribute

Indicates that an array in a structure or non-local variable should be treated as a fixed-length array.

VBFixedStringAttribute

Indicates that a string should be treated as if it were fixed length.
