ValidationOptionAttribute Class

Custom attribute that contains ValidationOption information. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:  System.Workflow.ComponentModel.Compiler
Assembly:  System.Workflow.ComponentModel (in System.Workflow.ComponentModel.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets::Property|AttributeTargets::Event, AllowMultiple = false, 
	Inherited = true)]
public ref class ValidationOptionAttribute sealed : public Attribute

This attribute should only be used as dependency property option. Attributes are ignored if declared on a .NET property.

The ValidationOptionAttribute is intended to be used on Meta-properties only. It will be ignored for instance properties. For more information, see Using Activity Properties for more details.

If the ValidationOptionAttribute is not specified, the behavior defaults to ValidationOption::Optional.

public sealed partial class Activity1: Activity
    public Activity1()

    public static DependencyProperty MyPropertyProperty = 
            new PropertyMetadata(
                new ValidationOptionAttribute(ValidationOption.Required)));

    public string MyProperty
            return ((string)(base.GetValue(Activity1.MyPropertyProperty)));
            base.SetValue(Activity1.MyPropertyProperty, value);


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