The following code example displays the attributes of the user-defined method Mymethod.

Remarks

All members have a set of attributes, which are defined in relation to the specific type of member.

To get the MethodAttributes, first get the type. From the type, get the method. From the method, get the MethodAttributes.

Notes to Inheritors

Use the Attributes property to determine whether a method is public, private, final, virtual, and so on.
