AttachedPropertyBrowsableForTypeAttribute Class


Specifies that an attached property is browsable only for elements that derive from a specified type.

Namespace:   System.Windows
Assembly:  WindowsBase (in WindowsBase.dll)


[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple = true)]
public sealed class AttachedPropertyBrowsableForTypeAttribute : AttachedPropertyBrowsableAttribute


Initializes a new instance of the AttachedPropertyBrowsableForTypeAttribute class, using the provided targetType.


Gets the base type that scopes the use of the attached property where this .NET Framework attribute applies.


Gets a unique type identifier for this AttachedPropertyBrowsableForTypeAttribute .NET Framework attribute.(Overrides Attribute.TypeId.)


Determines whether the current AttachedPropertyBrowsableForTypeAttribute .NET Framework attribute is equal to a specified object.(Overrides Attribute.Equals(Object).)


Returns the hash code for this AttachedPropertyBrowsableForTypeAttribute .NET Framework attribute.(Overrides Attribute.GetHashCode().)


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


When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.(Inherited from Attribute.)


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


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

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.)


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 meaning of the term browsable as used in descriptions for this .NET Framework attribute is analogous to the descriptions given for BrowsableAttribute, but the browsable state for an attached property is particularly relevant to property information for Extensible Application Markup Language (XAML), because an attached property is primarily a XAML concept.

If more than one type is specified for a AttachedPropertyBrowsableForTypeAttribute .NET Framework attribute, the property is browsable if any specified type matches (logical or). The type can also be an interface.

This  .NET Framework attribute specifies AllowMultiple true.

This .NET Framework attribute should only be applied on the get accessor of attached property definitions. Do not apply this .NET Framework attribute to the set accessor. Although intuitively it is the set operation that is being made browsable for XAML on relevant elements, it is the presence and characteristics of the get accessor on the property defining element that controls the true behavior.
