The .NET API Reference documentation has a new home. Visit the .NET API Browser on to see the new experience.

Enables COM+ object construction support. This class cannot be inherited.

Namespace:   System.EnterpriseServices
Assembly:  System.EnterpriseServices (in System.EnterpriseServices.dll)


[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class, Inherited = true)]
public sealed class ConstructionEnabledAttribute : Attribute


Initializes a new instance of the ConstructionEnabledAttribute class and initializes the default settings for Enabled and Default.


Initializes a new instance of the ConstructionEnabledAttribute class, setting Enabled to the specified value.


Gets or sets a default value for the constructor string.


Gets or sets a value indicating whether COM+ object construction support is enabled.


When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)


This API supports the product infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)


Returns the hash code for this instance.(Inherited from Attribute.)


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 following code example demonstrates the use of this attribute to associate an object constructor string with a ServicedComponent class.

// Accept a constructor string.

public class EmployeeInformation : ServicedComponent

    // The employee's user name and salary.
    private string accountName;
    private double salary = 0;

    // Get the employee's name. All users can call this method.
    public string GetName ()

    // Set the employee's salary. Only managers can do this.
    public void SetSalary (double ammount)
        if (SecurityCallContext.CurrentCall.IsCallerInRole("Manager"))
            salary = ammount;
            throw new UnauthorizedAccessException();

    // Get the employee's salary. Only the employee and managers can do this.
    public double GetSalary ()
        if ( SecurityCallContext.CurrentCall.DirectCaller.AccountName == accountName ||
             SecurityCallContext.CurrentCall.IsCallerInRole("Manager") )
          throw new UnauthorizedAccessException();

    // Use the constructor string.
    // This method is called when the object is instantiated.
    protected override void Construct (string constructorString)
        accountName = constructorString;
