Gets the custom switch attributes defined in the application configuration file.

Namespace:  System.Diagnostics
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public StringDictionary Attributes { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Collections.Specialized.StringDictionary
A StringDictionary containing the case-insensitive custom attributes for the trace switch.

The Attributes property identifies the custom attributes referenced in the application's configuration file. Unreferenced custom attributes are not enumerated. Classes that inherit from the Switch class can add custom attributes by overriding the GetSupportedAttributes method and returning a string array of custom attribute names.

The following code sample shows how to display the unrecognized attributes for a custom switch.

// Get the custom attributes for the trace source switch. 
foreach (DictionaryEntry de in ts.Switch.Attributes)
    Console.WriteLine(de.Key + "  " + de.Value);
