You can apply this attribute to assemblies, interfaces, classes, enumerations, structures, or delegates.

The string passed to the attribute must be in a format that is an acceptable constructor argument for the type Guid. To avoid conflicts with the type Guid, use the long name GuidAttribute explicitly. Only use an explicit GUID when a type must have a specific GUID. If the attribute is omitted, a GUID is assigned automatically.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
