The AssemblyKeyNameAttribute type exposes the following members.

Constructors
  NameDescription
Public method Supported by the XNA Framework Supported by Portable Class Library AssemblyKeyNameAttributeInitializes a new instance of the AssemblyKeyNameAttribute class with the name of the container holding the key pair used to generate a strong name for the assembly being attributed.
Top
Properties
  NameDescription
Public property Supported by the XNA Framework Supported by Portable Class Library KeyNameGets the name of the container having the key pair that is used to generate a strong name for the attributed assembly.
Public property TypeIdWhen implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Top
Methods
  NameDescription
Public method Supported by the XNA Framework Supported by Portable Class Library EqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method Supported by the XNA Framework Supported by Portable Class Library GetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method Supported by the XNA Framework Supported by Portable Class Library GetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method IsDefaultAttributeWhen overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method Supported by the XNA Framework MatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method Supported by the XNA Framework Supported by Portable Class Library ToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Explicit Interface Implementations
  NameDescription
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _AttributeGetIDsOfNamesMaps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _AttributeGetTypeInfoRetrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _AttributeGetTypeInfoCountRetrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _AttributeInvokeProvides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

Remarks

When building a strong-named assembly, the author must supply either this attribute or AssemblyKeyFileAttribute.

An example of the syntax is [assembly:AssemblyKeyNameAttribute("myContainer")].

The classes in System.Runtime.CompilerServices are intended for use by compilers only. Do not use them unless you are building a compiler.
