ContractPublicPropertyNameAttribute Class

Specifies that a field can be used in method contracts when the field has less visibility than the method.


Namespace:  System.Diagnostics.Contracts
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public sealed class ContractPublicPropertyNameAttribute : Attribute

The ContractPublicPropertyNameAttribute type exposes the following members.

Public methodContractPublicPropertyNameAttributeInitializes a new instance of the ContractPublicPropertyNameAttribute class.

Public propertyNameGets the property name to be applied to the field.

Public methodEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

When you apply the ContractPublicPropertyNameAttribute attribute to a field, that field can be used in the code contracts for a method when the field has less visibility than the method. There must be a visible property that is equivalent to the value of the field. For example, you can use this attribute if the method is public but the field is private.
