Properties
  NameDescription
Public property TypeIdWhen implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Top
Methods
  NameDescription
Public method Supported by the XNA Framework Supported by Portable Class Library Supported in .NET for Windows Store apps EqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method Supported by the XNA Framework Supported by Portable Class Library Supported in .NET for Windows Store apps GetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method Supported by the XNA Framework Supported by Portable Class Library Supported in .NET for Windows Store apps 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 Supported by the XNA Framework MatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

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

This attribute is provided for use by source code debuggers; the common language runtime is not affected by it. For example, the Visual Studio debugger does not stop in a method that is marked with this attribute even if a breakpoint is set in the method. The following code shows how the Visual Basic compiler uses the attribute.

<System.Diagnostics.DebuggerStepThrough()> _
    Private Sub InitializeComponent()
        components = New System.ComponentModel.Container()
        Me.AutoScaleMode = System.Windows.Forms.AutoScaleMode.Font
        Me.Text = "Form1"
    End Sub

This attribute avoids having to step into compiler-provided code and only steps into developer-provided code. For example, if you are stepping through code by using the F11 (Step Into) key, the attribute will cause the step to behave like an F10 (Step Over) key for compiler-provided code. The method won’t be stepped into, but it will be executed.
