NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod DebuggerVisualizerAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the DebuggerVisualizerAttribute class, specifying the type name of the visualizer.

System_CAPS_pubmethod DebuggerVisualizerAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the DebuggerVisualizerAttribute class, specifying the type name of the visualizer and the type name of the visualizer object source.

System_CAPS_pubmethod DebuggerVisualizerAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the DebuggerVisualizerAttribute class, specifying the type name of the visualizer and the type of the visualizer object source.

System_CAPS_pubmethod DebuggerVisualizerAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the DebuggerVisualizerAttribute class, specifying the type of the visualizer.

System_CAPS_pubmethod DebuggerVisualizerAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the DebuggerVisualizerAttribute class, specifying the type of the visualizer and the type name of the visualizer object source.

System_CAPS_pubmethod DebuggerVisualizerAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the DebuggerVisualizerAttribute class, specifying the type of the visualizer and the type of the visualizer object source.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets or sets the description of the visualizer.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets or sets the target type when the attribute is applied at the assembly level.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets or sets the fully qualified type name when the attribute is applied at the assembly level.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets the fully qualified type name of the visualizer object source.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets the fully qualified type name of the visualizer.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod Equals

This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetHashCode

Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)

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

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

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

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.)

This attribute can be used at the assembly level. Typically the attribute constructors take two types. The two types are a visualizer and a visualizer object source, specified as types or as fully qualified assembly type names. The second option is provided so that the visualizer assembly does not need to be referenced by the assembly containing the DebuggerVisualizerAttribute. This allows a component creator to ship the visualizer in a DLL to be called only at debug time. The property specifies the visualizer description that appears in the drop-down box. The target parameters specify the type that is the target of the visualizer. For more information about visualizers, see Create Custom Visualizers of Data.

System_CAPS_noteNote

Visualizer and visualizer object source implementation is dependent upon the hosting debugger. For information on creating a visualizer for Visual Studio 2005, see How to: Write a Visualizer.
