	Inherited = false)]
public sealed class DecimalConstantAttribute : Attribute

System_CAPS_pubmethodDecimalConstantAttribute(Byte, Byte, Int32, Int32, Int32)

Initializes a new instance of the DecimalConstantAttribute class with the specified signed integer values.

System_CAPS_pubmethodDecimalConstantAttribute(Byte, Byte, UInt32, UInt32, UInt32)

Initializes a new instance of the DecimalConstantAttribute class with the specified unsigned integer values.


When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Gets the decimal constant stored in this attribute.


This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)


When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

Use this attribute to specify at compile time that a decimal value is a constant value.

You can apply this attribute to fields or parameters.
