MemberInfo.IsDefined Method (Type, Boolean)

 

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether one or more attributes of the specified type or of its derived types is applied to this member.

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

abstract IsDefined : 
        attributeType:Type *
        inherit:bool -> bool

Parameters

attributeType
Type: System.Type

The type of custom attribute to search for. The search includes derived types.

inherit
Type: System.Boolean

true to search this member's inheritance chain to find the attributes; otherwise, false. This parameter is ignored for properties and events; see Remarks.

Return Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if one or more instances of attributeType or any of its derived types is applied to this member; otherwise, false.

This method ignores the inherit parameter for properties and events. To search the inheritance chain for attributes on properties and events, use the appropriate overloads of the Attribute.IsDefined method.

System_CAPS_noteNote

In the .NET Framework version 2.0, this method returns true if a type, method, or constructor has security attributes stored in the new metadata format. Assemblies compiled with version 2.0 use this format. Dynamic assemblies and assemblies compiled with earlier versions of the .NET Framework use the old XML format. See Emitting Declarative Security Attributes.
