AssemblyDelaySignAttribute AssemblyDelaySignAttribute AssemblyDelaySignAttribute AssemblyDelaySignAttribute Class

Definition

Specifies that the assembly is not fully signed when created.

public ref class AssemblyDelaySignAttribute sealed : Attribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Assembly, Inherited=false)]
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComVisible(true)]
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Assembly, AllowMultiple=false)]
public sealed class AssemblyDelaySignAttribute : Attribute
type AssemblyDelaySignAttribute = class
    inherit Attribute

Examples

The following code example shows the use of the AssemblyDelaySignAttribute attribute with the AssemblyKeyFileAttribute. To compile this example, you must create a strong-name key file named TestPublicKey.snk using the Sn.exe (Strong Name Tool):

sn -k TestPublicKey.snk   

Compile the example as a .dll. If you compile from the command line, use the /t:library option for C# or Visual Basic, or the /LD linker option for Visual C++.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;

[assembly:AssemblyKeyFileAttribute("TestPublicKey.snk")];
[assembly:AssemblyDelaySignAttribute(true)];

namespace DelaySign
{
    public ref class Test { };
}
using System;
using System.Reflection;

[assembly:AssemblyKeyFileAttribute("TestPublicKey.snk")]
[assembly:AssemblyDelaySignAttribute(true)]

namespace DelaySign
{
	public class Test { }
}
Imports System
Imports System.Reflection

<assembly:AssemblyDelaySignAttribute(true)>
<assembly:AssemblyKeyFileAttribute("TestPublicKey.snk")>

Namespace DelaySign

    Public class Test
    End Class

End Namespace

Remarks

When this attribute is used on an assembly, space is reserved for the signature which is later filled by a signing tool such as the Sn.exe utility. Delayed signing is used when the author of the assembly does not have access to the private key that will be used to generate the signature, as in [assembly:AssemblyDelaySignAttribute(true)].

The classes in System.Runtime.CompilerServices are intended for use by compilers only. Do not use them unless you are building a compiler.
