Specifies that an importing compiler must fully understand the semantics of a type definition, or refuse to use it. This class cannot be inherited.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)
Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)
When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)
When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)
Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
|_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)|
Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)
|_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)|
Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)
Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)
|_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)|
Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)
You can apply this attribute to classes, structures, enumerations, and interfaces.
For example, you can use this attribute to mark a C++ class that has a copy constructor. Any compiler that uses such a class must understand every constraint on its use, such as never creating an object of that class in the garbage collected heap, because a relocation does not call its copy constructor.
The classes in System.Runtime.CompilerServices are for compiler writers use only.
