TypeLibVarFlags Enumeration

Describes the original settings of the VARFLAGS in the COM type library from which the variable was imported.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

[Visual Basic]
Public Enum TypeLibVarFlags
public enum TypeLibVarFlags
__value public enum TypeLibVarFlags
enum TypeLibVarFlags


TypeLibVarFlags is used in conjunction with the TypeLibVarAttribute. The flags are retained for reference only. They are not used by the common language runtime.

For more information, see VARFLAGS in the MSDN library.


Member name Description Value
FBindable The variable supports data binding. 4
FDefaultBind The variable is the single property that best represents the object. Only one variable in a type info can have this value. 32
FDefaultCollelem Permits an optimization in which the compiler looks for a member named "xyz" on the type "abc". If such a member is found and is flagged as an accessor function for an element of the default collection, then a call is generated to that member function. 256
FDisplayBind The variable is displayed as bindable. FBindable must also be set. 16
FHidden The variable should not be displayed in a browser, though it exists and is bindable. 64
FImmediateBind The variable is mapped as individual bindable properties. 4096
FNonBrowsable The variable appears in an object browser, but not in a properties browser. 1024
FReadOnly Assignment to the variable should not be allowed. 1
FReplaceable Tags the interface as having default behaviors. 2048
FRequestEdit Indicates that the property supports the COM OnRequestEdit notification. 8
