SqlUserDefinedAggregateAttribute Class

Indicates that the type should be registered as a user-defined aggregate. The properties on the attribute reflect the physical attributes used when the type is registered with SQL Server. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Server
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class|AttributeTargets.Struct, AllowMultiple = false, 
	Inherited = false)]
public sealed class SqlUserDefinedAggregateAttribute : Attribute

SQL Server creates a user-defined aggregate that is bound to the class definition that has the SqlUserDefinedAggregateAttribute custom attribute. Every user-defined aggregate must be annotated with this attribute.

See "CLR User-Defined Aggregates" in SQL Server 2005 Books Online for more information on user-defined aggregates and examples.

The following example shows the SqlUserDefinedAggregateAttribute attribute for a user-defined aggregate. The aggregate uses custom serialization, has a maximum size of 8000 bytes when serialized, and is invariant to nulls, duplicates, and order.

using System;
using System.IO;
using System.Data.Sql;
using System.Data.SqlTypes;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.SqlServer.Server;

   IsInvariantToNulls = true,			
   IsInvariantToDuplicates = false,		
   IsInvariantToOrder = false,			
   MaxByteSize = 8000)				
public class Concatenate : Microsoft.SqlServer.Server.IBinarySerialize
