using System.Reflection;

//Define a module-level attribute.
[module: MySimpleAttribute("module-level")]

class Example
{
    public static void Demo(System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock outputBlock)
    {
        Module[] moduleArray = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly().GetModules();
        Module myModule = moduleArray[0];
        object[] attributes = myModule.GetCustomAttributes(true);
        foreach (Object o in attributes)
        {
            outputBlock.Text += 
               String.Format("Found this attribute on myModule: {0}.\n", o.ToString());
        }
    }
}

//A very simple custom attribute.
[AttributeUsage(AttributeTargets.Class | AttributeTargets.Module)]
public class MySimpleAttribute : Attribute
{
    private string name;

    public MySimpleAttribute(string newName)
