System_CAPS_pubmethod PropertyFilterAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the PropertyFilterAttribute class.


Gets the filter options for this PropertyFilterAttribute .NET Framework attribute.


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

System_CAPS_pubmethod Equals

Returns a value that indicates whether the current PropertyFilterAttribute .NET Framework attribute is equal to a specified object.(Overrides AttributeEquals.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetHashCode

Returns the hash code for the current PropertyFilterAttribute .NET Framework attribute. (Overrides AttributeGetHashCode.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetType

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod IsDefaultAttribute

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod Match

Returns a value that indicates whether the property filter options of the current PropertyFilterAttribute .NET Framework attribute match the property filter options of the provided object. (Overrides AttributeMatch.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod ToString

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubfield System_CAPS_static Default

This member supports the Microsoft .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.

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.)

The PropertyFilterAttribute .NET Framework attribute  supports an internal mechanism that limits the number of properties on a type that are returned by the custom  DependencyObject type descriptor. If the .NET Framework attribute is found, the type descriptor narrows the scope of returned properties. PropertyFilterAttribute differs from typical .NET Framework attributes because you cannot apply it to a class as metadata. The filter mechanism works through code instead of through static metadata.
