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.)
Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)
When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)
When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)
Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)
|_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)|
Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)
|_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.)
Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)
|_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)|
Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)
The following methods, which maintain the store of information about available pipeline segments, use this attribute to identify an add-in.
This attribute is not required when an add-in is found exclusively by the FindAddIn method. The host has already identified the add-in by its type name and location, and therefore the attribute is not required for the add-in to be discovered.
This attribute should be used only on types that activate the segments of the pipeline. Types that represent objects passed between the host and the add-in do not need this attribute.
The following example identifies an add-in.
' This pipeline segment has ' two attributes: ' 1 - An AddInAttribute to identify ' this segment as an add-in. ' ' 2 - A QualificationDataAttribute to ' indicate that the add-in should ' be loaded into a new application domain. <AddIn("Calculator Add-in", Version:="188.8.131.52")> _ <QualificationData("Isolation", "NewAppDomain")> _ Public Class SampleV2AddIn
