Attributes

Fields

Always 1

The dependency is always loaded.

Default 0

No preference specified.

Sometimes 2

The dependency is sometimes loaded.

Remarks

Use this enumeration with the DependencyAttribute attribute and the DefaultDependencyAttribute attribute to specify the preferred default binding for a dependent assembly.

Note that the Default value directs the native generation service to consult the dependent assembly for its preferred default binding, which is specified using the DefaultDependencyAttribute attribute. Very few assemblies should need to specify a default value in this manner.
