GetAttributeValue Method

IIS 7.0

Returns the value of the specified attribute.

Namespace:  Microsoft.Web.Administration
Assembly:  Microsoft.Web.Administration (in Microsoft.Web.Administration.dll)

public Object GetAttributeValue(
	string attributeName


Type: System..::..String
The name of the requested attribute.

Return Value

Type: System..::..Object
An object that represents the requested attribute, if it exists; otherwise, nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).


The attributeName parameter is nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or empty.

If the name of the requested attribute is not in the value of the RawAttributes property, this method returns nullNothingnullptrunita null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

You can also get the attribute value by using the Item property or the ConfigurationAttribute..::..Value property. GetAttributeValue is the preferred method.

The following example gets the attribute value.

// Use any of the following lines to retrieve the attribute value.
// attributeBag[ConfigurationDemoGlobals.AttributeName] = "name";
attributeBag[ConfigurationDemoGlobals.AttributeName] =
// attributeBag[ConfigurationDemoGlobals.AttributeName] =
//    moduleproviderelement["name"];
