ComUnregisterFunctionAttribute ComUnregisterFunctionAttribute ComUnregisterFunctionAttribute ComUnregisterFunctionAttribute Class

Definition

Specifies the method to call when you unregister an assembly for use from COM; this allows for the execution of user-written code during the unregistration process.

public ref class ComUnregisterFunctionAttribute sealed : Attribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Method, Inherited=false)]
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComVisible(true)]
public sealed class ComUnregisterFunctionAttribute : Attribute
type ComUnregisterFunctionAttribute = class

Examples

The following example demonstrates applying ComRegisterFunctionAttribute and ComUnregisterFunctionAttribute to methods with the appropriate signature.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::InteropServices;
public ref class MyClassThatNeedsToRegister
{
public:

   [ComRegisterFunctionAttribute]
   static void RegisterFunction( Type^ t )
   {
      
      //Insert code here.
   }


   [ComUnregisterFunctionAttribute]
   static void UnregisterFunction( Type^ t )
   {
      
      //Insert code here.
   }

};

using System;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;

public class MyClassThatNeedsToRegister
{
   [ComRegisterFunctionAttribute]
   public static void RegisterFunction(Type t)
   {
      //Insert code here.
   }
   
   [ComUnregisterFunctionAttribute]
   public static void UnregisterFunction(Type t)
   {
      //Insert code here.
   }
}
Imports System
Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices

Public Class MyClassThatNeedsToRegister
    
    <ComRegisterFunctionAttribute()> Public Shared Sub _
      RegisterFunction(t As Type)
        'Insert code here.
    End Sub
    
    <ComUnregisterFunctionAttribute()> Public Shared Sub _
      UnregisterFunction(t As Type)
        'Insert code here.
    End Sub
End Class

Remarks

You can apply this attribute to methods.

ComUnregisterFunctionAttribute enables you to add code that reverses the operations performed by a registration method. If you apply the ComRegisterFunctionAttribute to provide a registration method, you must also provide an unregistration method to reverse the operations done in the registration method. You can have only one unregistration method for a class.

The common language runtime calls the method with this attribute when its containing assembly is unregistered (directly or indirectly) with the Regasm.exe (Assembly Registration Tool) or through the RegistrationServices.UnregisterAssembly API method. Methods with this attribute can have any visibility (public, private, and so on), but must be static and must take a single Type parameter for the Type to unregister.
