MemberInfo.GetCustomAttributesData Method

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Returns a list of CustomAttributeData objects representing data about the attributes that have been applied to the target member.

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

public virtual IList<CustomAttributeData> GetCustomAttributesData()

Return Value

Type: System.Collections.Generic.IList<CustomAttributeData>
A generic list of CustomAttributeData objects representing data about the attributes that have been applied to the target member.

Use this method to examine the custom attributes of code in the reflection-only context, in cases where the custom attributes themselves are defined in code that is loaded into the reflection-only context. Methods like Attribute.GetCustomAttributes and MemberInfo.GetCustomAttributes cannot be used in such cases, because they create instances of the attributes. Code in the reflection-only context cannot be executed. For more information and for example code, see the CustomAttributeData class.

This method gets custom attribute data for types, nested types, and type members, because the Type class and the classes in the System.Reflection namespace that represent type members all derive from MemberInfo.
