NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodExportAttribute()

Initializes a new instance of the ExportAttribute class, exporting the type or member marked with this attribute under the default contract name.

System_CAPS_pubmethodExportAttribute(String)

Initializes a new instance of the ExportAttribute class, exporting the type or member marked with this attribute under the specified contract name.

System_CAPS_pubmethodExportAttribute(String, Type)

Initializes a new instance of the ExportAttribute class, exporting the specified type under the specified contract name.

System_CAPS_pubmethodExportAttribute(Type)

Initializes a new instance of the ExportAttribute class, exporting the type or member marked with this attribute under a contract name derived from the specified type.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyContractName

Gets the contract name that is used to export the type or member marked with this attribute.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyContractType

Gets the contract type that is exported by the member that this attribute is attached to.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeId

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

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.)

System_CAPS_protmethodFinalize()

Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsDefaultAttribute()

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodMatch(Object)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_protmethodMemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_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.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount(UInt32)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

In the Attributed Programming Model, the ExportAttribute declares that a part exports, or provides to the composition container, an object that fulfills a particular contract. During composition, parts with imports that have matching contracts will have those dependencies filled by the exported object.

The ExportAttribute can decorate either an entire class, or a property, field, or method of a class. If the entire class is decorated, an instance of the class is the exported object. If a member of a class is decorated, the exported object will be the value of the decorated member.

Whether or not a contract matches is determined primarily by the contract name and the contract type. For more information, see ImportAttribute.

The following example shows three classes decorated with the ExportAttribute, and three imports that match them.
