ObfuscateAssemblyAttribute Class

 

Instructs obfuscation tools to use their standard obfuscation rules for the appropriate assembly type.

Namespace:   System.Reflection
Assembly:  mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets::Assembly, AllowMultiple = false, 
	Inherited = false)]
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)]
public ref class ObfuscateAssemblyAttribute sealed : Attribute

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodObfuscateAssemblyAttribute(Boolean)

Initializes a new instance of the ObfuscateAssemblyAttribute class, specifying whether the assembly to be obfuscated is public or private.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyAssemblyIsPrivate

Gets a Boolean value indicating whether the assembly was marked private.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyStripAfterObfuscation

Gets or sets a Boolean value indicating whether the obfuscation tool should remove the attribute after processing.

System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeId

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

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object^)

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_pubmethodGetHashCode()

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

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

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

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsDefaultAttribute()

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_pubmethodMatch(Object^)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

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

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute::GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute::GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute::GetTypeInfoCount(UInt32)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute::Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

The ObfuscationAttribute and ObfuscateAssemblyAttribute attributes provide a way for assembly authors to annotate their binaries so that obfuscation tools can process them correctly with minimal external configuration.

Applying this attribute to an assembly tells the obfuscation tool to use its default rules for the assembly type.

System_CAPS_importantImportant

Applying this attribute does not automatically obfuscate the assembly. Applying the attribute is an alternative to creating a configuration file for the obfuscation tool. That is, it merely provides instructions for an obfuscation tool. Microsoft recommends that vendors of obfuscation tools follow the semantics described here. However, there is no guarantee that a particular tool follows Microsoft recommendations.

You can apply ObfuscationAttribute to types within an assembly, and to members on those types. The innermost attribute controls the way an obfuscation tool treats any particular code entity.

The following code example shows a private assembly that has been marked with the ObfuscateAssemblyAttribute. The StripAfterObfuscation property is false, to prevent the obfuscation tool from stripping the attribute after processing.

For a code example that shows the use of ObfuscateAssemblyAttribute with ObfuscationAttribute, see the ObfuscationAttribute class.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
