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

public sealed class ExtenderProvidedPropertyAttribute : Attribute

The ExtenderProvidedPropertyAttribute type exposes the following members.

Public methodExtenderProvidedPropertyAttributeInitializes a new instance of the ExtenderProvidedPropertyAttribute class.

Public propertyExtenderPropertyGets the property that is being provided.
Public propertyProviderGets the extender provider that is providing the property.
Public propertyReceiverTypeGets the type of object that can receive the property.
Public propertyTypeIdWhen implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)

Public methodEqualsDetermines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Overrides Attribute.Equals(Object).)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Overrides Attribute.GetHashCode().)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsDefaultAttributeProvides an indication whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Overrides Attribute.IsDefaultAttribute().)
Public methodMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetIDsOfNamesMaps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetTypeInfoRetrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCountRetrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.InvokeProvides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

The ExtenderProvidedPropertyAttribute is injected automatically by the TypeDescriptor class on properties that are exposed as extended properties.


Do not use this attribute on your properties. Instead, use the ProvidePropertyAttribute on a type that implements the IExtenderProvider interface. For more information, see Extender Providers.
