  NameDescription
Public methodOnMetadataCreatedWhen implemented in a class, provides metadata to the model metadata creation process.
Top

This interface can be implemented by an attribute class so that the attribute can add metadata to the model metadata creation process without writing a custom metadata provider. This interface is consumed by the AssociatedMetadataProvider class, so this behavior is inherited by all classes which derive from it, such as the DataAnnotationsModelMetadataProvider class.
