Attribute Constructor ()

 

Initializes a new instance of the Attribute class.

Namespace:   System
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

protected Attribute()

This constructor is only called by classes that derive from Attribute.

The following code example shows the definition of a custom parameter Attribute class with its constructor.

// Define a custom parameter attribute that takes a single message argument.
[AttributeUsage( AttributeTargets.Parameter )]
public class ArgumentUsageAttribute : Attribute
{
    // This is the attribute constructor.
    public ArgumentUsageAttribute( string UsageMsg )
    {
        this.usageMsg = UsageMsg;
    }

    // usageMsg is storage for the attribute message.
    protected string usageMsg;

    // This is the Message property for the attribute.
    public string Message
    {
        get { return usageMsg; }
        set { usageMsg = value; }
    }
}
