Public NotInheritable Class AssemblyCompanyAttribute
	Inherits Attribute

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodAssemblyCompanyAttribute(String)

Initializes a new instance of the AssemblyCompanyAttribute class.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyCompany

Gets company name information.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeId

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsDefaultAttribute()

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodMatch(Object)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount(UInt32)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides 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.

Module Example

   Sub Main()

      Dim assemName As New AssemblyName()
      assemName.Name = "EmittedAssembly"

      ' Create a dynamic assembly in the current application domain,
      ' specifying that the assembly is to be saved.
      '
      Dim myAssembly As AssemblyBuilder = _
         AppDomain.CurrentDomain.DefineDynamicAssembly(assemName, _
            AssemblyBuilderAccess.Save)


      ' To apply an attribute to a dynamic assembly, first get the 
      ' attribute type. The AssemblyFileVersionAttribute sets the 
      ' File Version field on the Version tab of the Windows file
      ' properties dialog.
      '
      Dim attributeType As Type = GetType(AssemblyFileVersionAttribute)

      ' To identify the constructor, use an array of types representing
      ' the constructor's parameter types. This ctor takes a string.
      '
      Dim ctorParameters() As Type = { GetType(String) }

      ' Get the constructor for the attribute.
      '
      Dim ctor As ConstructorInfo = _
                         attributeType.GetConstructor(ctorParameters)

      ' Pass the constructor and an array of arguments (in this case,
      ' an array containing a single string) to the 
      ' CustomAttributeBuilder constructor.
      '
      Dim ctorArgs() As Object = { "2.0.3033.0" }
      Dim attribute As New CustomAttributeBuilder(ctor, ctorArgs)

      ' Finally, apply the attribute to the assembly.
      '
      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.


      ' The AssemblyTitleAttribute sets the Description field on
      ' the General tab and the Version tab of the Windows file 
      ' properties dialog.
      '
      attributeType = GetType(AssemblyTitleAttribute)
      ctor = attributeType.GetConstructor(ctorParameters)
      ctorArgs = New Object() { "The Application Title" }
      attribute = New CustomAttributeBuilder(ctor, ctorArgs)
      myAssembly.SetCustomAttribute(attribute)

      ' The AssemblyCopyrightAttribute sets the Copyright field on
      ' the Version tab.
      '
      attributeType = GetType(AssemblyCopyrightAttribute)
      ctor = attributeType.GetConstructor(ctorParameters)
      ctorArgs = New Object() { "� My Example Company 1991-2005" }
      attribute = New CustomAttributeBuilder(ctor, ctorArgs)
      myAssembly.SetCustomAttribute(attribute)

      ' The AssemblyDescriptionAttribute sets the Comment item.
      '
      attributeType = GetType(AssemblyDescriptionAttribute)
      ctor = attributeType.GetConstructor(ctorParameters)
      attribute = New CustomAttributeBuilder(ctor, _
         New Object() { "This is a comment." })
      myAssembly.SetCustomAttribute(attribute)

      ' The AssemblyCompanyAttribute sets the Company item.
      '
      attributeType = GetType(AssemblyCompanyAttribute)
      ctor = attributeType.GetConstructor(ctorParameters)
      attribute = New CustomAttributeBuilder(ctor, _
         New Object() { "My Example Company" })
      myAssembly.SetCustomAttribute(attribute)

      ' The AssemblyProductAttribute sets the Product Name item.
      '
      attributeType = GetType(AssemblyProductAttribute)
      ctor = attributeType.GetConstructor(ctorParameters)
      attribute = New CustomAttributeBuilder(ctor, _
         New Object() { "My Product Name" })
      myAssembly.SetCustomAttribute(attribute)


      ' Define the assembly's only module. For a single-file assembly,
      ' the module name is the assembly name.
      '
      Dim myModule As ModuleBuilder = _
         myAssembly.DefineDynamicModule(assemName.Name, _
            assemName.Name & ".exe")

      ' No types or methods are created for this example.


      ' Define the unmanaged version information resource, which
      ' contains the attribute informaion applied earlier, and save
      ' the assembly. Use the Windows Explorer to examine the properties
      ' of the .exe file.
      '
      myAssembly.DefineVersionInfoResource()
      myAssembly.Save(assemName.Name & ".exe")
