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


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.

public ref class ArgumentUsageAttribute: public Attribute

   // usageMsg is storage for the attribute message.
   String^ usageMsg;


   // This is the attribute constructor.
   ArgumentUsageAttribute( String^ UsageMsg )
      this->usageMsg = UsageMsg;

   property String^ Message 
      // This is the Message property for the attribute.
      String^ get()
         return usageMsg;

      void set( String^ value )
         this->usageMsg = value;
