Assembly: System (in system.dll)
MemberDescriptor is the base class for the EventDescriptor and the PropertyDescriptor classes. The EventDescriptor class provides a description of an event, and the PropertyDescriptor class provides a description of a property.
This class defines properties and methods to access its stored attributes. The Attributes property gets the collection of attributes. The Category, IsBrowsable, Description, and DesignTimeOnly properties retrieve the values of those specific attributes. The Name and DisplayName properties provide the name of the member.
The MemberDescriptor also defines an Equals method to compare this MemberDescriptor to another.
Typically, you inherit from the EventDescriptor and PropertyDescriptor classes, and not from this class.
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this class has the following Resources property value: SharedState. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
