public class ContextStaticAttribute : Attribute

The ContextStaticAttribute type exposes the following members.

Public methodContextStaticAttributeInitializes a new instance of the ContextStaticAttribute class.

Public methodEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

A static field marked with ContextStaticAttribute is not shared between contexts. If the indicated static field is accessed on a different context, it will contain a different value. Use this attribute as it is, and do not derive from it.

The following example shows the syntax of this attribute:


static int f=7;

Obsolete (does not compile) in 7.0 and later

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
