Indicates the physical position of fields within the unmanaged representation of a class or structure.

type FieldOffsetAttribute = 
    class
        inherit Attribute
    end

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodFieldOffsetAttribute(Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the FieldOffsetAttribute class with the offset in the structure to the beginning of the field.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeId

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyValue

Gets the offset from the beginning of the structure to the beginning of the field.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

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.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsDefaultAttribute()

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodMatch(Object)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_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.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount(UInt32)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_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 fields.

This attribute is used when System.Runtime.InteropServices.StructLayoutAttribute, with LayoutKind.Explicit passed to its constructor, is applied to a class or structure to specify the offset of each non- static or constant member within the unmanaged representation of that class or structure.

The following example demonstrates how to apply the FieldOffsetAttribute to members of a class with an explicit layout.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

For a larger example, see the System.Runtime.InteropServices.StructLayoutAttribute class.
