Represents an attribute declaration.

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

public class CodeAttributeDeclaration

A CodeAttributeDeclaration can be used to represent an expression that declares an attribute. The attribute name and the arguments for the attribute are stored as properties of the object. A CodeAttributeArgument can be used to represent each argument for the attribute.

The following code example creates a CodeAttributeDeclaration that declares a CLSCompliantAttribute with an argument of false:

CodeAttributeDeclaration declaration1 = new CodeAttributeDeclaration(
    new CodeAttributeArgument(new CodePrimitiveExpression(false)));

// A C# code generator produces the following source code for the 
// preceeding example code:
// [CLSCompliantAttribute(false)]
