DynamicMethod.GetCustomAttributes Method (Type, Boolean)

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

Returns the custom attributes of the specified type that have been applied to the method.

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

public override Object[] GetCustomAttributes(
	Type attributeType,
	bool inherit


Type: System.Type
A Type representing the type of custom attribute to return.
Type: System.Boolean
true to search the method's inheritance chain to find the custom attributes; false to check only the current method.

Return Value

Type: System.Object []
An array of objects representing the attributes of the method that are of type attributeType or derive from type attributeType.


ICustomAttributeProvider.GetCustomAttributes(Type, Boolean)


attributeType is null.

For dynamic methods, specifying true for inherit has no effect, because the method is not declared in a type.


Custom attributes are not currently supported on dynamic methods. The only attribute returned is MethodImplAttribute; you can get the method implementation flags more easily using the GetMethodImplementationFlags method.
