Examples

The following example shows how to use the ContractClassAttribute attribute to specify that the contracts for the IArray interface are contained in the IArrayContracts class.

#define CONTRACTS_FULL

using System;
using System.Diagnostics.Contracts;


// An IArray is an ordered collection of objects.    
[ContractClass(typeof(IArrayContract))]
public interface IArray
{
    // The Item property provides methods to read and edit entries in the array.
    Object this[int index]
    {
        get;
        set;
    }

    int Count
    {
        get;

    }

    // Adds an item to the list.  
    // The return value is the position the new element was inserted in.
    int Add(Object value);

    // Removes all items from the list.
    void Clear();

    // Inserts value into the array at position index.
    // index must be non-negative and less than or equal to the 
    // number of elements in the array.  If index equals the number
    // of items in the array, then value is appended to the end.
    void Insert(int index, Object value);


    // Removes the item at position index.
    void RemoveAt(int index);
}

Remarks

Types that are marked with this attribute have code contracts that are included in a separate type. The type that contains the contracts is specified in the constructor.

Constructors

ContractClassAttribute(Type) ContractClassAttribute(Type) ContractClassAttribute(Type) ContractClassAttribute(Type)

Initializes a new instance of the ContractClassAttribute class.

Properties

TypeContainingContracts TypeContainingContracts TypeContainingContracts TypeContainingContracts

Gets the type that contains the code contracts for this type.

TypeId TypeId TypeId TypeId

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.

(Inherited from Attribute)

Methods

Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object) Equals(Object)

Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.

(Inherited from Attribute)
GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode() GetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.

GetType() GetType() GetType() GetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
IsDefaultAttribute() IsDefaultAttribute() IsDefaultAttribute() IsDefaultAttribute()

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.

(Inherited from Attribute)
Match(Object) Match(Object) Match(Object) Match(Object)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.
