AssemblyDelaySignAttribute Class

Specifies that the assembly is not fully signed when created.


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

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly, Inherited = false)]
public sealed class AssemblyDelaySignAttribute : Attribute

The AssemblyDelaySignAttribute type exposes the following members.

Public methodAssemblyDelaySignAttributeInitializes a new instance of the AssemblyDelaySignAttribute class.

Public propertyDelaySignGets a value indicating the state of the attribute.

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.)

When this attribute is used on an assembly, space is reserved for the signature which is later filled by a signing tool such as the Sn.exe utility. Delayed signing is used when the author of the assembly does not have access to the private key that will be used to generate the signature.

For more information, see the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) documentation, especially "Partition II: Metadata Definition and Semantics". The documentation is available online; see ECMA C# and Common Language Infrastructure Standards on MSDN and Standard ECMA-335 - Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) on the Ecma International Web site.
