[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class, AllowMultiple = false)]
public sealed class BuildProviderAppliesToAttribute : Attribute


Initializes a new instance of the BuildProviderAppliesToAttribute class that applies to the specified resource location.


Gets a value that indicates where the specified BuildProvider class will be applied when a resource with the appropriate extension is found.


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

The BuildProvider class will parse and generate code during compilation for a resource with a specific file extension. The BuildProviderAppliesToAttribute attribute defines the location scope for which the BuildProvider object will be called.

By setting the BuildProviderAppliesToAttribute attribute, you can limit a BuildProvider object to certain reserved ASP.NET directories, such as \App_Code.

If you do not apply a BuildProviderAppliesToAttribute attribute to a BuildProvider class, the default is All.
