LoadHint Enumeration

 

Specifies the preferred default binding for a dependent assembly.

Namespace:   System.Runtime.CompilerServices
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[SerializableAttribute]
public enum LoadHint

Member nameDescription
Always

The dependency is always loaded.

Default

No preference specified.

Sometimes

The dependency is sometimes loaded.

Use this enumeration with the DependencyAttribute attribute and the DefaultDependencyAttribute attribute to specify the preferred default binding for a dependent assembly.

Note that the Default value directs the native generation service to consult the dependent assembly for its preferred default binding, which is specified using the DefaultDependencyAttribute attribute. Very few assemblies should need to specify a default value in this manner.
