SwitchAttribute Class

Definition

Identifies a switch used in an assembly, class, or member.

public ref class SwitchAttribute sealed : Attribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Assembly | System.AttributeTargets.Class | System.AttributeTargets.Constructor | System.AttributeTargets.Event | System.AttributeTargets.Method | System.AttributeTargets.Property)]
public sealed class SwitchAttribute : Attribute
type SwitchAttribute = class
    inherit Attribute
Public NotInheritable Class SwitchAttribute

Examples

The following example shows how to use the SwitchAttribute attribute to identify the switch used in an assembly. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the TraceSource class.

[SwitchAttribute("SourceSwitch", typeof(SourceSwitch))]
static void Main()
<SwitchAttribute("SourceSwitch", GetType(SourceSwitch))> _
Shared Sub Main()

Remarks

A SwitchAttribute attribute can be used on an assembly, class, constructor, method, property, or event.

The SwitchAttribute attribute can be used by tools that inspect an assembly for configuration settings.

Constructors

SwitchAttribute(String, Type)

Initializes a new instance of the SwitchAttribute class, specifying the name and the type of the switch.

Properties

Gets or sets the description of the switch.

SwitchName

Gets or sets the display name of the switch.

SwitchType

Gets or sets the type of the switch.

TypeId

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

GetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.

(Inherited from Attribute)
GetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
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)

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

Explicit Interface Implementations

_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.

(Inherited from Attribute)
_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.

(Inherited from Attribute)
_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount(UInt32)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).

(Inherited from Attribute)
_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.
