The EdmTypeAttribute type exposes the following members.

Properties
  NameDescription
Public property NameThe name of the type in the conceptual schema that maps to the class to which this attribute is applied.
Public property NamespaceNameThe namespace name of the entity object type or complex type in the conceptual schema that maps to this type.
Public property TypeIdWhen implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)

Methods
  NameDescription
Public method EqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected method FinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method GetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method IsDefaultAttributeWhen overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method MatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected method MemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method ToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Explicit Interface Implementations
  NameDescription
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _AttributeGetIDsOfNamesMaps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _AttributeGetTypeInfoRetrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _AttributeGetTypeInfoCountRetrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _AttributeInvokeProvides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

Remarks

EdmEntityTypeAttribute and EdmComplexTypeAttribute are derived from EdmTypeAttribute.
