Examples

The following example identifies an add-in.

// This pipeline segment has
// two attributes:
// 1 - An AddInAttribute to identify
//     this segment as an add-in.
//
// 2 - A QualificationDataAttribute to
//     indicate that the add-in should
//     be loaded into a new application domain.

    [AddIn("Calculator Add-in",Version="2.0.0.0")]
    [QualificationData("Isolation", "NewAppDomain")]
    public class SampleV2AddIn : Calculator2
    {
' This pipeline segment has
' two attributes:
' 1 - An AddInAttribute to identify
'     this segment as an add-in.
'
' 2 - A QualificationDataAttribute to
'     indicate that the add-in should
'     be loaded into a new application domain.

<AddIn("Calculator Add-in", Version:="2.0.0.0")> _
<QualificationData("Isolation", "NewAppDomain")> _
    Public Class SampleV2AddIn

Remarks

The following methods, which maintain the store of information about available pipeline segments, use this attribute to identify an add-in.

This attribute is not required when an add-in is found exclusively by the FindAddIn method. The host has already identified the add-in by its type name and location, and therefore the attribute is not required for the add-in to be discovered.

This attribute should be used only on types that activate the segments of the pipeline. Types that represent objects passed between the host and the add-in do not need this attribute.
