Specifies the usage of another attribute class. This class cannot be inherited.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
Gets or sets a Boolean value indicating whether more than one instance of the indicated attribute can be specified for a single program element.
Gets or sets a Boolean value that determines whether the indicated attribute is inherited by derived classes and overriding members.
Gets a set of values identifying which program elements that the indicated attribute can be applied to.
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.)
When you are defining your own attribute class, you can control the manner in which it is used by placing an Attribute, either directly or indirectly.on your attribute class. The indicated attribute class must derive from
Attribute classes have positional and named parameters. Each public constructor for an attribute class defines a valid sequence of positional parameters for that class. Named parameters are defined by the non-static, public, and read-write fields or properties of the attribute class.
The three properties ofare set by defining the following parameters:
This positional parameter specifies the program elements that the indicated attribute can be placed on. The set of all possible elements that you can place an attribute on is listed in the AttributeTargets enumeration. You can combine several AttributeTargets values using a bitwise OR operation to get the desired combination of valid program elements.
This named parameter specifies whether the indicated attribute can be specified more than once for a given program element.
This named parameter specifies whether the indicated attribute can be inherited by derived classes and overriding members.
