public sealed class TimestampAttribute : Attribute

In a database table, a time stamp value is used for data versioning and does not represent an actual time. You apply this attribute to a property that contains a time stamp value from a database and therefore is not relevant to user input.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
