  NameDescription
Public propertySupported by the XNA FrameworkSupported by Portable Class LibraryCompanyGets company name information.
Public propertyTypeIdWhen implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)

  NameDescription
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::InvokeProvides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

The following example shows how to apply attributes, including the AssemblyCompanyAttribute attribute, to a dynamic assembly. The example saves the assembly to disk, and the attribute value can be viewed by using the Windows File Properties dialog.


using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
using namespace System::Reflection::Emit;


/*
// Create the callee transient dynamic assembly.
static Type^ CreateAssembly( AppDomain^ myDomain )
{
   AssemblyName^ myAssemblyName = gcnew AssemblyName;
   myAssemblyName->Name = "MyEmittedAssembly";
   AssemblyBuilder^ myAssembly = myDomain->DefineDynamicAssembly( myAssemblyName, AssemblyBuilderAccess::Save );

   // Set Company Attribute to the assembly.
   Type^ companyAttribute = AssemblyCompanyAttribute::typeid;
   array<Type^>^types1 = {String::typeid};
   ConstructorInfo^ myConstructorInfo1 = companyAttribute->GetConstructor( types1 );
   array<Object^>^obj1 = {"Microsoft Corporation"};
   CustomAttributeBuilder^ attributeBuilder1 = gcnew CustomAttributeBuilder( myConstructorInfo1,obj1 );
   myAssembly->SetCustomAttribute( attributeBuilder1 );

   // Set Copyright Attribute to the assembly.
   Type^ copyrightAttribute = AssemblyCopyrightAttribute::typeid;
   array<Type^>^types2 = {String::typeid};
   ConstructorInfo^ myConstructorInfo2 = copyrightAttribute->GetConstructor( types2 );
   array<Object^>^obj2 = {"@Copyright Microsoft Corp. 1990-2001"};
   CustomAttributeBuilder^ attributeBuilder2 = gcnew CustomAttributeBuilder( myConstructorInfo2,obj2 );
   myAssembly->SetCustomAttribute( attributeBuilder2 );
   ModuleBuilder^ myModule = myAssembly->DefineDynamicModule( "EmittedModule", "EmittedModule.mod" );

   // Define a public class named S"HelloWorld" in the assembly.
   TypeBuilder^ helloWorldClass = myModule->DefineType( "HelloWorld", TypeAttributes::Public );

   // Define the Display method.
   MethodBuilder^ myMethod = helloWorldClass->DefineMethod( "Display", MethodAttributes::Public, String::typeid, nullptr );

   // Generate IL for GetGreeting.

   methodIL->Emit( OpCodes::Ldstr, "Display method get called." );
   methodIL->Emit( OpCodes::Ret );

   // Returns the type HelloWorld.

int main()

   // Create a dynamic assembly in the current application domain,
   // specifying that the assembly is to be saved.

   // To identify the constructor, use an array of types representing
   // the constructor's parameter types. This ctor takes a string.

   array<Type^>^ ctorParameters = { String::typeid };

   // Get the constructor for the attribute.
   //
   ConstructorInfo^ ctor = attributeType->GetConstructor(ctorParameters);

   // Pass the constructor and an array of arguments (in this case,

   //
   myAssembly->SetCustomAttribute(attribute);


   // The pattern described above is used to create and apply
   // several more attributes. As it happens, all these attributes
   // have a constructor that takes a string, so the same ctorArgs
   // variable works for all of them.
