ICustomAttributeProvider.GetCustomAttributes Method (Type, Boolean)

 

Returns an array of custom attributes defined on this member, identified by type, or an empty array if there are no custom attributes of that type.

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

object[] GetCustomAttributes(
	Type attributeType,
	bool inherit
)

Parameters

attributeType
Type: System.Type

The type of the custom attributes.

inherit
Type: System.Boolean

When true, look up the hierarchy chain for the inherited custom attribute.

Return Value

Type: System.Object[]

An array of Objects representing custom attributes, or an empty array.

Exception Condition
TypeLoadException

The custom attribute type cannot be loaded.

ArgumentNullException

attributeType is null.

If attributeType is a base class or interface, this method returns any implementation of that type.

This method returns custom attributes defined directly on a non-inherited member only.

Calling ICustomAttributeProvider.GetCustomAttributes on PropertyInfo or EventInfo when the inherit parameter of GetCustomAttributes is true does not walk the type hierarchy. Use System.Attribute to inherit custom attributes.
