ProvideBindingPathAttribute Class

Definition

This attribute registers a path that should be probed for candidate assemblies at assembly load time.

For example: [...\VisualStudio$(Ver)\BindingPaths{5C48C732-5C7F-40f0-87A7-05C4F15BC8C3}] "$PackageFolder$"=""

This would register the "PackageFolder" (i.e. the location of the pkgdef file) as a directory to be probed for assemblies to load.

Properties

SubPath

An optional SubPath to set after $PackageFolder$. This should be used if the assemblies to be probed reside in a different directory than the pkgdef file.

TypeId

Override the TypeID property in order to let the RegistrationAttribute derived classes to work with System.ComponentModel.TypeDescriptor.GetAttributes(...). An attribute derived from this one will have to override this property only if it needs a better control on the instances that can be applied to a class.
