ProgIdAttribute ProgIdAttribute ProgIdAttribute ProgIdAttribute Class

Definition

Allows the user to specify the ProgID of a class.

public ref class ProgIdAttribute sealed : Attribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Class, Inherited=false)]
[System.Runtime.InteropServices.ComVisible(true)]
public sealed class ProgIdAttribute : Attribute
type ProgIdAttribute = class
    inherit Attribute
Public NotInheritable Class ProgIdAttribute

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to apply ProgIdAttribute on a class. The application then gets all attributes of MyClass, and prints the Value property of ProgIdAttribute.

[ClassInterface(ClassInterfaceType::AutoDispatch)]
[ProgId("InteropSample.MyClass")]
public ref class MyClass
{
public:
   MyClass(){}

};

int main()
{
   try
   {
      AttributeCollection^ attributes;
      attributes = TypeDescriptor::GetAttributes( MyClass::typeid );
      ProgIdAttribute^ progIdAttributeObj = dynamic_cast<ProgIdAttribute^>(attributes[ ProgIdAttribute::typeid ]);
      Console::WriteLine( "ProgIdAttribute's value is set to : {0}", progIdAttributeObj->Value );
   }
   catch ( Exception^ e ) 
   {
      Console::WriteLine( "Exception : {0}", e->Message );
   }
}
[ClassInterface(ClassInterfaceType.AutoDispatch)]
[ProgId("InteropSample.MyClass")]
public class MyClass
{
    public MyClass() {}
}

class TestApplication
{      
   public static void Main()
   {
      try
      {
         AttributeCollection attributes;
         attributes = TypeDescriptor.GetAttributes(typeof(MyClass));
         ProgIdAttribute progIdAttributeObj = (ProgIdAttribute)attributes[typeof(ProgIdAttribute)];
         Console.WriteLine("ProgIdAttribute's value is set to : " + progIdAttributeObj.Value);
      }         
      catch(Exception e)
      {
         Console.WriteLine("Exception : " + e.Message);
      }
   }
}
   <ClassInterface(ClassInterfaceType.AutoDispatch), ProgId("InteropSample.MyClass")>  _
   Public Class [MyClass]
      
      Public Sub New()
      End Sub 'New
   End Class '[MyClass]

   Class TestApplication
      
      Public Shared Sub Main()
         Try
            Dim attributes As AttributeCollection
            attributes = TypeDescriptor.GetAttributes(GetType([MyClass]))
            Dim progIdAttributeObj As ProgIdAttribute = CType(attributes(GetType(ProgIdAttribute)), ProgIdAttribute)
            Console.WriteLine(("ProgIdAttribute's value is set to : " + progIdAttributeObj.Value))
         Catch e As Exception
            Console.WriteLine(("Exception : " + e.Message.ToString()))
         End Try
      End Sub 'Main
   End Class 'TestApplication
End Namespace 'InteropSample 

Remarks

You can apply this attribute to classes.

ProgIDs are automatically generated for a class by combining the namespace with the type name. This can produce an invalid ProgID however, as ProgIDs are limited to 39 characters and can contain no punctuation other than a period. In such case, a ProgID can be manually assigned to the class using ProgIdAttribute.

Constructors

ProgIdAttribute(String) ProgIdAttribute(String) ProgIdAttribute(String) ProgIdAttribute(String)

Initializes a new instance of the ProgIdAttribute with the specified ProgID.

Properties

TypeId TypeId TypeId TypeId

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.

(Inherited from Attribute)
Value Value Value Value

Gets the ProgID of the class.

Methods

(Inherited from Attribute)
Match(Object) Match(Object) Match(Object) Match(Object)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.
