NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod SwitchAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the SwitchAttribute class, specifying the name and the type of the switch.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets or sets the description of the switch.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets or sets the display name of the switch.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets or sets the type of the switch.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

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 System_CAPS_static GetAll

Returns all switch attributes for the specified assembly.

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.)

A SwitchAttribute attribute can be used on an assembly, class, constructor, method, property, or event.

The SwitchAttribute attribute can be used by tools that inspect an assembly for configuration settings.

The following example shows how to use the SwitchAttribute attribute to identify the switch used in an assembly. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the TraceSource class.

[SwitchAttribute("SourceSwitch", typeof(SourceSwitch))]
static void Main()
<SwitchAttribute("SourceSwitch", GetType(SourceSwitch))> _
Shared Sub Main()
.NET Framework
Available since 2.0

Any public static ( Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
