Object[] GetCustomAttributes(
	bool inherit
)

Parameters

inherit
Type: System.Boolean

When true, look up the hierarchy chain for the inherited custom attribute.

An array of Objects representing custom attributes, or an empty array.

ExceptionCondition
TypeLoadException

The custom attribute type cannot be loaded.

AmbiguousMatchException

There is more than one attribute of type attributeType defined on this member.

Calling ICustomAttributeProvider.GetCustomAttributes on PropertyInfo or EventInfo when the inherit parameter of GetCustomAttributes is true does not walk the type hierarchy. Use System.Attribute to inherit custom attributes.

This method returns custom attributes defined directly on a non-inherited member only.
