Public methodContractReferenceAssemblyAttributeInitializes a new instance of the ContractReferenceAssemblyAttribute 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 contract reference assembly is named assembly.Contracts.dll, where assembly is the name of the assembly from which the contracts were extracted. A contract reference assembly contains the publicly visible interface of an assembly and its contracts, but contains no code. Contract reference assemblies are used both by the runtime analyzer to inherit contracts across assemblies, and during static verification to discover contracts on methods and types from assemblies outside the assembly that is under analysis.
