ContractVerificationAttribute Class

Instructs analysis tools to assume the correctness of an assembly, type, or member without performing static verification.


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

public sealed class ContractVerificationAttribute : Attribute

The ContractVerificationAttribute type exposes the following members.

Public methodContractVerificationAttributeInitializes a new instance of the ContractVerificationAttribute class.

Public propertyValueGets the value that indicates whether to verify the contract of the target.

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.)

Use ContractVerification(false) to explicitly mark an assembly, type, or member as not requiring verification. The most specific element found (member, type, and then assembly) takes precedence. Applying this attribute to a property, type, or assembly has the following effects:

  • When you apply it to a property, it applies to both the get accessor and the set accessor.

  • When you apply it to a type, it applies to all members of the type, including nested types.

  • When you apply it to an assembly, it applies to all types and members of the assembly.

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