VARFLAGS Enumeration

Note: This API is now obsolete.

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

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

[ObsoleteAttribute("Use System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComTypes.VARFLAGS instead.", 
public enum VARFLAGS

Member nameDescription
VARFLAG_FREADONLYAssignment to the variable should not be allowed.
VARFLAG_FSOURCEThe variable returns an object that is a source of events.
VARFLAG_FBINDABLEThe variable supports data binding.
VARFLAG_FREQUESTEDITWhen set, any attempt to directly change the property results in a call to IPropertyNotifySink::OnRequestEdit. The implementation of OnRequestEdit determines if the change is accepted.
VARFLAG_FDISPLAYBINDThe variable is displayed to the user as bindable. VARFLAGS.VARFLAG_FBINDABLE must also be set.
VARFLAG_FDEFAULTBINDThe variable is the single property that best represents the object. Only one variable in type information can have this attribute.
VARFLAG_FHIDDENThe variable should not be displayed to the user in a browser, although it exists and is bindable.
VARFLAG_FRESTRICTEDThe variable should not be accessible from macro languages. This flag is intended for system-level variables or variables that you do not want type browsers to display.
VARFLAG_FDEFAULTCOLLELEMPermits an optimization in which the compiler looks for a member named "xyz" on the type of "abc". If such a member is found and is flagged as an accessor function for an element of the default collection, then a call is generated to that member function. Permitted on members in dispinterfaces and interfaces; not permitted on modules.
VARFLAG_FUIDEFAULTThe variable is the default display in the user interface.
VARFLAG_FNONBROWSABLEThe variable appears in an object browser, but not in a properties browser.
VARFLAG_FREPLACEABLETags the interface as having default behaviors.
VARFLAG_FIMMEDIATEBINDThe variable is mapped as individual bindable properties.

For additional information about VARFLAGS, see the MSDN Library.
