Namespace:  System.Runtime.CompilerServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

public sealed class SuppressIldasmAttribute : Attribute

Apply the SuppressIldasmAttribute attribute to an assembly or module to prevent the assembly or module from being disassembled using the MSIL Disassembler (Ildasm.exe).

This attribute does not prevent an assembly from being viewed using reflection.

Note that SuppressIldasmAttribute attribute does not block the MSIL Disassembler (Ildasm.exe) from viewing header information and meta-information.

The following code example demonstrates how to apply the SuppressIldasmAttribute attribute to an assembly.

using System;
using System.Runtime.CompilerServices;

[assembly: SuppressIldasmAttribute()]
class Program
    static void Main(string[] args)
        Console.WriteLine("The SuppressIldasmAttribute is applied to this assembly.");
