Examples

The following example uses the DefaultMemberAttribute attribute to make the Age property the default member of the MyClass class.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Reflection;
using namespace System::IO;

[DefaultMemberAttribute("Age")]
public ref class MyClass
{
public:
   void Name( String^ s ){}


   property int Age 
   {
      int get()
      {
         return 20;
      }

   }

};

int main()
{
   try
   {
      Type^ myType = MyClass::typeid;
      array<MemberInfo^>^memberInfoArray = myType->GetDefaultMembers();
      if ( memberInfoArray->Length > 0 )
      {
         System::Collections::IEnumerator^ myEnum = memberInfoArray->GetEnumerator();
         while ( myEnum->MoveNext() )
         {
            MemberInfo^ memberInfoObj = safe_cast<MemberInfo^>(myEnum->Current);
            Console::WriteLine( "The default member name is: {0}", memberInfoObj );
         }
      }
      else
      {
         Console::WriteLine( "No default members are available." );
      }
   }
   catch ( InvalidOperationException^ e ) 
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "InvalidOperationException: {0}", e->Message );
   }
   catch ( IOException^ e ) 
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "IOException: {0}", e->Message );
   }
   catch ( Exception^ e ) 
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Exception: {0}", e->Message );
   }

Remarks

A property is imported as an indexer (default indexed property in Visual Basic) if the property has arguments and if the name of the property or one of its accessors matches the name specified by the DefaultMemberAttribute. If the DefaultMemberAttribute is not present on the containing type, then the type does not have an indexer. The C# compiler emits the DefaultMemberAttribute on any type containing an indexer. In C# it is an error to manually attribute a type with the DefaultMemberAttribute if the type also declares an indexer.
