TypeLibTypeFlags Enumeration

Describes the original settings of the TYPEFLAGS in the COM type library from which the type was imported.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

[Visual Basic]
Public Enum TypeLibTypeFlags
public enum TypeLibTypeFlags
__value public enum TypeLibTypeFlags
enum TypeLibTypeFlags


TypeLibTypeFlags is used along with the TypeLibTypeAttribute. The flags are retained for reference only. They are not used by the common language runtime.

For more information, see TYPEFLAGS in the MSDN library.
