NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod MarkupExtensionReturnTypeAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the MarkupExtensionReturnTypeAttribute class.

System_CAPS_pubmethod MarkupExtensionReturnTypeAttribute

Initializes a new instance of the MarkupExtensionReturnTypeAttribute class using the provided Type.

System_CAPS_pubmethod MarkupExtensionReturnTypeAttribute

Obsolete. Do not use, see Remarks.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubproperty

Obsolete. Do not use; see Remarks.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets the MarkupExtension return type that this .NET Framework attribute reports.

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 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 MarkupExtension derived custom class should apply this .NET Framework attribute to indicate a possible type-safe return type that is returned by its ProvideValue implementation. In other words, if a markup extension always returns a more specific type than type of Object, and casting to that type is a primary scenario, the markup extension class should attribute with MarkupExtensionReturnTypeAttribute and report that type.

In previous versions of the .NET Framework, this class existed in the WPF-specific assembly WindowsBase. In .NET Framework 4, MarkupExtensionReturnTypeAttribute is in the System.Xaml assembly. For more information, see Types Migrated from WPF to System.Xaml.

For more information on patterns for implementing a custom XAML markup extension, see MarkupExtension and Type Converters and Markup Extensions for XAML.
