AssemblyFlagsAttribute AssemblyFlagsAttribute AssemblyFlagsAttribute AssemblyFlagsAttribute Class

Definition

Specifies a bitwise combination of AssemblyNameFlags flags for an assembly, describing just-in-time (JIT) compiler options, whether the assembly is retargetable, and whether it has a full or tokenized public key. This class cannot be inherited.

Examples

The following code example shows how to apply the AssemblyFlagsAttribute to an assembly, and how to read the flags at run time. The example also creates an instance of the attribute, and uses the AssemblyFlags property to display the flags. For an example of how to apply the AssemblyFlagsAttribute to a dynamic assembly, see the AssemblyName.Flags property.

// assembly.

     AssemblyNameFlags::EnableJITcompileOptimizer

Remarks

The AssemblyNameFlags enumeration describes the assembly characteristics that can be set using this attribute.

To access the flags that have been specified for an assembly, use the Assembly.GetName property to obtain an AssemblyName object, then use the AssemblyName.Flags property to obtain an AssemblyNameFlags value.

To specify AssemblyNameFlags flags for a dynamic assembly, set the AssemblyName.Flags property of the AssemblyName object that you pass to the AppDomain.DefineDynamicAssembly method.
