ProvidePropertyAttribute ProvidePropertyAttribute ProvidePropertyAttribute ProvidePropertyAttribute Class

Definition

Specifies the name of the property that an implementer of IExtenderProvider offers to other components. This class cannot be inherited

Examples

The following example marks MyClass with a ProvidePropertyAttribute that tells the compiler to create a property called MyProperty from the GetMyProperty and SetMyProperty methods.

[ProvideProperty("MyProperty",Control::typeid)]
public ref class MyClass: public IExtenderProvider
{
protected:
   CultureInfo^ ciMine;

public:
   // Provides the Get portion of MyProperty. 
   CultureInfo^ GetMyProperty( Control^ myControl )
   {
      // Insert code here.
      return ciMine;
   }

   // Provides the Set portion of MyProperty.
   void SetMyProperty( Control^ myControl, String^ value )
   {
      // Insert code here.
   }

   /* When you inherit from IExtenderProvider, you must implement the 
        * CanExtend method. */
   virtual bool CanExtend( Object^ target )
   {
      return dynamic_cast<Control^>(target) != nullptr;
   }
   // Insert additional code here.
};
[ProvideProperty("MyProperty", typeof(Control))]
public class MyClass : IExtenderProvider {
    protected CultureInfo ciMine = null;
    // Provides the Get portion of MyProperty. 
    public CultureInfo GetMyProperty(Control myControl) {
        // Insert code here.
        return ciMine;
    }
    
    // Provides the Set portion of MyProperty.
    public void SetMyProperty(Control myControl, string value) {
        // Insert code here.
    }
    
    /* When you inherit from IExtenderProvider, you must implement the 
     * CanExtend method. */
    public bool CanExtend(Object target) {
        return(target is Control);
    }
    
    // Insert additional code here.
 }
<ProvideProperty("MyProperty", GetType(Control))> _
Public Class SampleClass

Remarks

When you mark a class with this attribute, you tell the code generator to create an extender property with the name you provide. The marked class must implement IExtenderProvider. As a result, the new property can be used by other components in a container.

Within the marked class, you must implement Get <name> and Set <name> methods. For example, if you mark a class with [ProvideProperty("PropertyName")], you must implement GetPropertyName and SetPropertyName methods. To specify that the new property will be an extender property, you must implement from IExtenderProvider, you must also implement a CanExtend method.
