Assembly.GetCustomAttributesData Method


Returns information about the attributes that have been applied to the current Assembly, expressed as CustomAttributeData objects.

 virtual System::Collections::Generic::IList<System::Reflection::CustomAttributeData ^> ^ GetCustomAttributesData();
public virtual System.Collections.Generic.IList<System.Reflection.CustomAttributeData> GetCustomAttributesData ();
abstract member GetCustomAttributesData : unit -> System.Collections.Generic.IList<System.Reflection.CustomAttributeData>
override this.GetCustomAttributesData : unit -> System.Collections.Generic.IList<System.Reflection.CustomAttributeData>
Public Overridable Function GetCustomAttributesData () As IList(Of CustomAttributeData)



A generic list of CustomAttributeData objects representing data about the attributes that have been applied to the current assembly.


Use this method to examine the custom attributes of code in the reflection-only context, in cases where the custom attributes themselves are defined in code that is loaded into the reflection-only context. Methods like Attribute.GetCustomAttributes and Assembly.GetCustomAttributes cannot be used in such cases, because they create instances of the attributes. Code in the reflection-only context cannot be executed. For more information and for example code, see the CustomAttributeData class.
