ContractClassForAttribute Class

Specifies that a class is a contract for a type.

System.Object
  System.Attribute
    System.Diagnostics.Contracts.ContractClassForAttribute

Namespace:  System.Diagnostics.Contracts
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[ConditionalAttribute("CONTRACTS_FULL")]
[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class, AllowMultiple = false, Inherited = false)]
public sealed class ContractClassForAttribute : Attribute

The ContractClassForAttribute type exposes the following members.

  NameDescription
Public methodContractClassForAttributeInitializes a new instance of the ContractClassForAttribute class, specifying the type the current class is a contract for.
Top

  NameDescription
Public propertyTypeContractsAreForGets the type that this code contract applies to.
Public propertyTypeIdWhen implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Top

  NameDescription
Public methodEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodIsDefaultAttributeWhen overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Top

  NameDescription
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetIDsOfNamesMaps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetTypeInfoRetrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCountRetrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method_Attribute.InvokeProvides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

Types that are marked with this attribute represent a code contract for another type. The type that the contract applies to is specified in the constructor.

The following example shows how to use the ContractClassForAttribute attribute to specify the contracts for another type. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ContractClassAttribute class.


[ContractClassFor(typeof(IArray))]
internal abstract class IArrayContract : IArray
{
    int IArray.Add(Object value)
    {
        // Returns the index in which an item was inserted.
        Contract.Ensures(Contract.Result<int>() >= -1);
        Contract.Ensures(Contract.Result<int>() < ((IArray)this).Count);
        return default(int);
    }
    Object IArray.this[int index]
    {
        get
        {
            Contract.Requires(index >= 0);
            Contract.Requires(index < ((IArray)this).Count);
            return default(int);
        }
        set
        {
            Contract.Requires(index >= 0);
            Contract.Requires(index < ((IArray)this).Count);
        }
    }
    public int Count
    {
        get
        {
            Contract.Requires(Count >= 0);
            Contract.Requires(Count <= ((IArray)this).Count);
            return default(int);
        }
    }

    void IArray.Clear()
    {
        Contract.Ensures(((IArray)this).Count == 0);
    }

    void IArray.Insert(int index, Object value)
    {
        Contract.Requires(index >= 0);
        Contract.Requires(index <= ((IArray)this).Count);  // For inserting immediately after the end.
        Contract.Ensures(((IArray)this).Count == Contract.OldValue(((IArray)this).Count) + 1);
    }

    void IArray.RemoveAt(int index)
    {
        Contract.Requires(index >= 0);
        Contract.Requires(index < ((IArray)this).Count);
        Contract.Ensures(((IArray)this).Count == Contract.OldValue(((IArray)this).Count) - 1);
    }
}
