PropertyInfo::Attributes Property

Gets the attributes for this property.

Namespace:  System.Reflection
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

virtual property PropertyAttributes Attributes {
	PropertyAttributes get () abstract;

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection::PropertyAttributes
Attributes of this property.



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.

To get the Attributes property, first get the class type. From the type, get the PropertyInfo. From the PropertyInfo, get the attributes.

The following example displays the attributes of the specified property.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
public ref class Myproperty
   String^ caption;

      : caption( "Default caption" )

   property String^ Caption 
      String^ get()
         return caption;

      void set( String^ value )
         if ( caption != value )
            caption = value;



int main()
   Console::WriteLine( "\nReflection.PropertyInfo" );

   // Define a property.
   Myproperty^ myproperty = gcnew Myproperty;
   Console::Write( "\nMyproperty->Caption = {0}", myproperty->Caption );

   // Get the type and PropertyInfo.
   Type^ MyType = Type::GetType( "Myproperty" );
   PropertyInfo^ Mypropertyinfo = MyType->GetProperty( "Caption" );

   // Get and display the attributes property.
   PropertyAttributes Myattributes = Mypropertyinfo->Attributes;
   Console::Write( "\nPropertyAttributes - {0}", Myattributes );
   return 0;
