IMetadataAware Interface

.NET Framework (current version)

The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Defines a method that must be implemented by classes that are metadata-aware.

Namespace:   System.Web.ModelBinding
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)

public interface IMetadataAware


Enables metadata-aware attributes to perform required processing of metadata after the metadata is created.

This interface enables attributes to contribute to the process of creating model metadata without requiring a custom metadata provider. It is used by the AssociatedMetadataProvider class, so this behavior is automatically inherited by all classes that derive from the AssociatedMetadataProvider class (notably the DataAnnotationsModelMetadataProvider class).
