ReferenceAssemblyAttribute Class

Definition

Identifies an assembly as a reference assembly, which contains metadata but no executable code.

public ref class ReferenceAssemblyAttribute sealed : Attribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Assembly, AllowMultiple=false)]
[System.Serializable]

type ReferenceAssemblyAttribute = class
    inherit Attribute
