EventAttributes EventAttributes EventAttributes EventAttributes Enum

Definition

Specifies the attributes of an event.

This enumeration has a FlagsAttribute attribute that allows a bitwise combination of its member values.

public enum class EventAttributes
[System.Flags]
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComVisible(true)]
[Serializable]
public enum EventAttributes
type EventAttributes = 
Public Enum EventAttributes

Fields

None None None None 0

Specifies that the event has no attributes.

ReservedMask ReservedMask ReservedMask ReservedMask 1024

Specifies a reserved flag for common language runtime use only.

RTSpecialName RTSpecialName RTSpecialName RTSpecialName 1024

Specifies that the common language runtime should check name encoding.

SpecialName SpecialName SpecialName SpecialName 512

Specifies that the event is special in a way described by the name.

Examples

The following example uses reflection emit to create a type with two events. It uses None to specify that the events have no attributes.

Remarks

EventAttributes values may be combined using the bitwise OR operation to get the appropriate combination.

These enums are defined in the corhdr.h file and are a combination of bits and enumerators.
