HostAdapterAttribute Class

Identifies an object as a host-side adapter segment of the pipeline.

Namespace:  System.AddIn.Pipeline
Assembly:  System.AddIn (in System.AddIn.dll)

public sealed class HostAdapterAttribute : Attribute

The Rebuild and Update methods, which maintain the store of information about available pipeline segments, use this attribute to identify a host-side adapter.

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 a host-side adapter.

// The HostAdapterAttribute identifes this class as the host-side adapter 
// pipeline segment.
public class CalculatorContractToViewHostSideAdapter : ICalculator
