Thread Safety

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


When this attribute is used on an assembly, space is reserved for the signature which is later filled by a signing tool such as the Sn.exe utility. Delayed signing is used when the author of the assembly does not have access to the private key that will be used to generate the signature, as in [assembly:AssemblyDelaySignAttribute(true)].

The classes in System.Runtime.CompilerServices are intended for use by compilers only. Do not use them unless you are building a compiler.For more detail, see the specifications for the common language runtime architecture, metadata, Microsoft intermediate language instruction set, file format, and Microsoft intermediate language assembly reference in the "Tool Developers Guide" folder of the SDK.
