When overridden in a derived class, returns an array of custom attributes applied to this member and identified by Type.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
- Type: System.Type
The type of attribute to search for. Only attributes that are assignable to this type are returned.
- Type: System.Boolean
true to search this member's inheritance chain to find the attributes; otherwise, false. This parameter is ignored for properties and events; see Remarks.
Return ValueType: System.Object
An array of custom attributes applied to this member, or an array with zero elements if no attributes assignable to attributeType have been applied.
A custom attribute type cannot be loaded.
If attributeType is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).
This member belongs to a type that is loaded into the reflection-only context. See How to: Load Assemblies into the Reflection-Only Context.
This method ignores the inherit parameter for properties and events. To search the inheritance chain for attributes on properties and events, use the appropriate overloads of the Attribute.GetCustomAttributes method.
In the .NET Framework version 2.0, this method returns security attributes on methods, constructors, and types if the attributes are stored in the new metadata format. Assemblies compiled with version 2.0 use this format. Dynamic assemblies and assemblies compiled with earlier versions of the .NET Framework use the old XML format. See Emitting Declarative Security Attributes.
