|GetHashCode||(Inherited from Attribute.)|
|GetType||(Inherited from Object.)|
|IsDefaultAttribute||(Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Match||(Inherited from Attribute.)|
|MemberwiseClone||(Inherited from Object.)|
|OnActionExecuted||Called by the ASP.NET MVC framework after the action method executes.|
|OnActionExecuting||Called by the ASP.NET MVC framework before the action method executes.|
|OnResultExecuted||Called by the ASP.NET MVC framework after the action result executes.|
|OnResultExecuting||Called by the ASP.NET MVC framework before the action result executes.|
|ToString||(Inherited from Object.)|
Typically, you create an action or response filter by creating an attribute class that inherits from the abstract class. Some built-in action filters, such as AuthorizeAttribute and HandleErrorAttribute, inherit from the FilterAttribute class. Other action filters, such as OutputCacheAttribute, inherit from the abstract class, which enables the action filter to run either before or after the action method runs.
You can use filter attributes to mark any action method or controller. If the attribute marks a controller, the filter applies to all action methods in that controller.
