DynamicMethod.ReturnTypeCustomAttributes Property

Gets the custom attributes of the return type for the dynamic method.

Namespace:  System.Reflection.Emit
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public override ICustomAttributeProvider ReturnTypeCustomAttributes { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Reflection.ICustomAttributeProvider
An ICustomAttributeProvider representing the custom attributes of the return type for the dynamic method.

Custom attributes are not supported on the return type of a dynamic method, so the array of custom attributes returned by the GetCustomAttributes method is always empty.

The following code example shows how to display the custom attributes of the return type of a dynamic method. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the DynamicMethod class.


// ReturnTypeCustomAttributes returns an ICustomeAttributeProvider
// that can be used to enumerate the custom attributes of the
// return value. At present, there is no way to set such custom
// attributes, so the list is empty.
if (hello.ReturnType == typeof(void))
{
   outputBlock.Text += "The method has no return type." + "\n";
}
else
{
   ICustomAttributeProvider caProvider = hello.ReturnTypeCustomAttributes;
   object[] returnAttributes = caProvider.GetCustomAttributes(true);
   if (returnAttributes.Length == 0)
   {
      outputBlock.Text += "The return type has no custom attributes." + "\n";
   }
   else
   {
      outputBlock.Text += "The return type has the following custom attributes:" + "\n";
      foreach (object attr in returnAttributes)
      {
         outputBlock.Text += "     " + attr.ToString() + "\n";
      }
   }
}
