StructLayoutAttribute Property

Type::StructLayoutAttribute Property

 

Gets a StructLayoutAttribute that describes the layout of the current type.

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

public:
property StructLayoutAttribute^ StructLayoutAttribute {
	virtual StructLayoutAttribute^ get();
}

Property Value

Type: System.Runtime.InteropServices::StructLayoutAttribute^

Gets a StructLayoutAttribute that describes the gross layout features of the current type.

Exception Condition
NotSupportedException

The invoked method is not supported in the base class.

StructLayoutAttribute is not returned by the GetCustomAttributes method. Instead, use this property to get it.

The following code example first defines a class, a structure, and a structure with special layout attributes (the structures are nested within the class). The example then uses the StructLayoutAttribute property to obtain a StructLayoutAttribute for each type, and displays the properties of the attributes.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::InteropServices;
value struct Test1
{
public:
   Byte B1;
   short S;
   Byte B2;
};


[StructLayout(LayoutKind::Explicit,Pack=1)]
value struct Test2
{
public:

   [FieldOffset(0)]
   Byte B1;

   [FieldOffset(1)]
   short S;

   [FieldOffset(3)]
   Byte B2;
};

static void DisplayLayoutAttribute( StructLayoutAttribute^ sla )
{
   Console::WriteLine( L"\r\nCharSet: {0}\r\n   Pack: {1}\r\n   Size: {2}\r\n  Value: {3}", sla->CharSet, sla->Pack, sla->Size, sla->Value );
}

int main()
{
   DisplayLayoutAttribute( Test1::typeid->StructLayoutAttribute );
   return 0;
}
