NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod InheritanceAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the InheritanceAttribute class.

System_CAPS_pubmethod InheritanceAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the InheritanceAttribute class with the specified inheritance level.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets or sets the current inheritance level stored in this attribute.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod Equals

Override to test for equality.(Overrides AttributeEquals.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetHashCode

Returns the hashcode for this object.(Overrides AttributeGetHashCode.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetType

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod IsDefaultAttribute

Gets a value indicating whether the current value of the attribute is the default value for the attribute.(Overrides AttributeIsDefaultAttribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod Match

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod ToString

Converts this attribute to a string.(Overrides ObjectToString.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubfield System_CAPS_static Default

Specifies that the default value for InheritanceAttribute is NotInherited. This field is read-only.

System_CAPS_pubfield System_CAPS_static Inherited

Specifies that the component is inherited. This field is read-only.

System_CAPS_pubfield System_CAPS_static InheritedReadOnly

Specifies that the component is inherited and is read-only. This field is read-only.

System_CAPS_pubfield System_CAPS_static NotInherited

Specifies that the component is not inherited. This field is read-only.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privmethod _AttributeGetIDsOfNames

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privmethod _AttributeGetTypeInfo

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privmethod _AttributeGetTypeInfoCount

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privmethod _AttributeInvoke

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

InheritanceAttribute represents the type and level of inheritance of a member.

When the AddInheritedComponents method of the IInheritanceService searches the component fields of a component to identify fields that are inherited from a base class, the method represents the inheritance level of each component using an InheritanceAttribute.
