Represents a keyword for an event. Keywords are defined in an event provider and are used to group the event with other similar events (based on the usage of the events).
Assembly: System.Core (in System.Core.dll)
Thetype exposes the following members.
|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified object is equal to the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Serves as the default hash function. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
This class cannot be instantiated. A ProviderMetadata object defies a list of objects, one for each keyword used by the provider events. Each keyword is a bit in a 64-bit mask. Predefined bit values and reserved bits occupy the top 16 positions of this mask, leaving the manifest to use any bits between 0x0000000000000001 and 0x0000800000000000.
The standard event keywords are defined in the StandardEventKeywords enumeration.
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: MayLeakOnAbort.
