Public Interface CodeAttribute


The CodeAttribute object represents one COM metadata attribute associated with a code element. You can get and set the value of a code attribute with the CodeAttribute object.


The values of code model elements such as classes, structs, functions, attributes, delegates, and so forth can be non-deterministic after making certain kinds of edits, meaning that their values cannot be relied upon to always remain the same. For more information, see the section Code Model Element Values Can Change in Discovering Code by Using the Code Model (Visual Basic).
