DesignTimeResourceProviderFactoryAttribute Class


Specifies the type of resource provider factory for design time. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:   System.Web.Compilation
Assembly:  System.Web (in System.Web.dll)


Public NotInheritable Class DesignTimeResourceProviderFactoryAttribute
	Inherits Attribute


Initializes a new instance of the DesignTimeResourceProviderFactoryAttribute class with the attribute set to the specified factory type name.


Initializes a new instance of the DesignTimeResourceProviderFactoryAttribute class with the attribute set to the qualified name of the specified factory type.


Gets the value of the factory type name.


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.)


Determines whether the default provider is used.(Overrides Attribute.IsDefaultAttribute().)


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 DesignTimeResourceProviderFactoryAttribute class allows a ResourceProviderFactory object to specify the type of the associated DesignTimeResourceProviderFactory object. The DesignTimeResourceProviderFactory class is used to create design-time providers for reading and writing resources. Within Microsoft Visual Studio 2005, a developer can use the Generate Local Resource command on the Tools menu to create resources during design time.

The following code example shows a customized resource provider factory that specifies a customized design-time resource provider factory through the DesignTimeResourceProviderFactoryAttribute attribute. This example does not include the code necessary to implement a customized design-time resource provider factory.
