ObfuscationAttribute.Feature Property

Gets or sets a string value that is recognized by the obfuscation tool, and which specifies processing options.

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

public string Feature { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.String
A string value that is recognized by the obfuscation tool, and which specifies processing options. The default is "all".

The value passed to this property depends on the obfuscation tool used. It is recommended that vendors of obfuscation tools support at least "default" and "all". Vendors can use these settings in conjunction with the XML configuration file.

Important noteImportant

Applying this attribute does not automatically obfuscate the code entity to which you apply it. Applying the attribute is an alternative to creating a configuration file for the obfuscation tool. That is, it merely provides instructions for an obfuscation tool. Microsoft recommends that vendors of obfuscation tools follow the semantics described here. However, there is no guarantee that a particular tool follows Microsoft recommendations.

The following code example shows a method that is marked with the value "default" for the Feature property. It is necessary to specify false for the Exclude property to avoid excluding MethodA from obfuscation, because the default for the Exclude property is true. The StripAfterObfuscation property is false so that the obfuscation tool will not strip the attribute after obfuscation.

This code is part of a larger example that can be compiled and executed. See the ObfuscationAttribute class.

[ObfuscationAttribute(Exclude=false, Feature="default", 
    StripAfterObfuscation=false)]
public void MethodA() {}
