EventAttributes Enumeration

[ This article is for Windows Phone 8 developers. If you’re developing for Windows 10, see the latest documentation. ]

Specifies the attributes of an event.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

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

<FlagsAttribute> _
Public Enumeration EventAttributes

Member nameDescription
NoneSpecifies that the event has no attributes.
ReservedMaskSpecifies a reserved flag for common language runtime use only.
RTSpecialNameSpecifies that the common language runtime should check name encoding.
SpecialNameSpecifies that the event is special in a way described by the name.

EventAttributes values may be combined using the bitwise OR operation to get the appropriate combination.

The following example uses reflection emit to create a type with two events. It uses EventAttributes.None to specify that the events have no attributes.

Imports System.Threading
Imports System.Reflection
Imports System.Reflection.Emit

Public Class Example

   Delegate Sub MyEvent(ByVal temp As Object)

   Public Shared Sub Demo(ByVal outputBlock As System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock)
      Dim helloWorldClass As TypeBuilder = CreateCallee(Thread.GetDomain())

      Dim info As EventInfo() = helloWorldClass.GetEvents(BindingFlags.Public Or _
      outputBlock.Text &= "'HelloWorld' type has following events :" & vbCrLf
      Dim i As Integer
      For i = 0 To info.Length - 1
         outputBlock.Text &= info(i).Name & vbCrLf
      Next i
   End Sub 'Main

   ' Create the callee transient dynamic assembly.
   Private Shared Function CreateCallee(ByVal myDomain As AppDomain) As TypeBuilder
      Dim myAssemblyName As New AssemblyName()
      myAssemblyName.Name = "EmittedAssembly"

      ' Create the callee dynamic assembly.
      Dim myAssembly As AssemblyBuilder = myDomain.DefineDynamicAssembly _
                                          (myAssemblyName, AssemblyBuilderAccess.Run)
      ' Create a dynamic module named "CalleeModule" in the callee
      Dim myModule As ModuleBuilder = myAssembly.DefineDynamicModule("EmittedModule")

      ' Define a public class named "HelloWorld" in the assembly.
      Dim helloWorldClass As TypeBuilder = myModule.DefineType _
                                           ("HelloWorld", TypeAttributes.Public)

      Dim myMethod1 As MethodBuilder = helloWorldClass.DefineMethod _
                    ("OnClick", MethodAttributes.Public, Nothing, New Type() {GetType(Object)})
      Dim methodIL1 As ILGenerator = myMethod1.GetILGenerator()
      Dim myMethod2 As MethodBuilder = helloWorldClass.DefineMethod _
                   ("OnMouseUp", MethodAttributes.Public, Nothing, New Type() {GetType(Object)})
      Dim methodIL2 As ILGenerator = myMethod2.GetILGenerator()

      ' Create the events.
      Dim myEvent1 As EventBuilder = helloWorldClass.DefineEvent _
                                         ("Click", EventAttributes.None, GetType(MyEvent))
      Dim myEvent2 As EventBuilder = helloWorldClass.DefineEvent _
                                         ("MouseUp", EventAttributes.None, GetType(MyEvent))

      Return helloWorldClass
   End Function 'CreateCallee
End Class 'MyApplication
