	string name,
	byte[] data
)

Unlike the metadata custom attribute, this custom attribute is associated with a symbol writer.

The code sample below illustrates the contextual usage of the SetSymCustomAttribute method to set the byte values for the name and key of a custom attribute attached to a method.

	MethodBuilder myMethod = myDynamicType.DefineMethod("MyMethod",
						MethodAttributes.Public,
						typeof(int),
						new Type[] { typeof(string) });

	// A 128-bit key in hex form, represented as a byte array.
	byte[] keyVal = { 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00,
			  0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00, 0x60, 0xFF, 0xFF };	

	System.Text.ASCIIEncoding encoder = new System.Text.ASCIIEncoding();
	byte[] symFullName = encoder.GetBytes("My Dynamic Method");

	myMethod.SetSymCustomAttribute("SymID", keyVal);
	myMethod.SetSymCustomAttribute("SymFullName", symFullName);
