Type.StructLayoutAttribute Type.StructLayoutAttribute Type.StructLayoutAttribute Type.StructLayoutAttribute Property

Definition

Gets a StructLayoutAttribute that describes the layout of the current type.

public:
 virtual property System::Runtime::InteropServices::StructLayoutAttribute ^ StructLayoutAttribute { System::Runtime::InteropServices::StructLayoutAttribute ^ get(); };
public virtual System.Runtime.InteropServices.StructLayoutAttribute StructLayoutAttribute { get; }
member this.StructLayoutAttribute : System.Runtime.InteropServices.StructLayoutAttribute
Public Overridable ReadOnly Property StructLayoutAttribute As StructLayoutAttribute

Property Value

Gets a StructLayoutAttribute that describes the gross layout features of the current type.

Exceptions

The invoked method is not supported in the base class.

Examples

The following code example first defines a class, a structure, and a structure with special layout attributes (the structures are nested within the class). The example then uses the StructLayoutAttribute property to obtain a StructLayoutAttribute for each type, and displays the properties of the attributes.

using namespace System;
using namespace System::Runtime::InteropServices;
value struct Test1
{
public:
   Byte B1;
   short S;
   Byte B2;
};


[StructLayout(LayoutKind::Explicit,Pack=1)]
value struct Test2
{
public:

   [FieldOffset(0)]
   Byte B1;

   [FieldOffset(1)]
   short S;

   [FieldOffset(3)]
   Byte B2;
};

static void DisplayLayoutAttribute( StructLayoutAttribute^ sla )
{
   Console::WriteLine( L"\r\nCharSet: {0}\r\n   Pack: {1}\r\n   Size: {2}\r\n  Value: {3}", sla->CharSet, sla->Pack, sla->Size, sla->Value );
}

int main()
{
   DisplayLayoutAttribute( Test1::typeid->StructLayoutAttribute );
   return 0;
}

using System;
using System.Runtime.InteropServices;

public class Example
{
    public static void Main()
    {
        DisplayLayoutAttribute(typeof(Example).StructLayoutAttribute);
        DisplayLayoutAttribute(typeof(Test1).StructLayoutAttribute);
        DisplayLayoutAttribute(typeof(Test2).StructLayoutAttribute);
    }

    private static void DisplayLayoutAttribute(StructLayoutAttribute sla)
    {
        Console.WriteLine("\r\nCharSet: "+sla.CharSet.ToString()+"\r\n   Pack: "+sla.Pack.ToString()+"\r\n   Size: "+sla.Size.ToString()+"\r\n  Value: "+sla.Value.ToString());
    }
    public struct Test1
    {
        public byte B1;
        public short S;
        public byte B2;
    }
    [StructLayout(LayoutKind.Explicit, Pack=1)] public struct Test2
    {
        [FieldOffset(0)] public byte B1;
        [FieldOffset(1)] public short S;
        [FieldOffset(3)] public byte B2;
    }
}
Imports System
Imports System.Runtime.InteropServices

Public Class Example
    Public Shared Sub Main()
        DisplayLayoutAttribute(GetType(Example).StructLayoutAttribute)
        DisplayLayoutAttribute(GetType(Test1).StructLayoutAttribute)
        DisplayLayoutAttribute(GetType(Test2).StructLayoutAttribute)
    End Sub

    Private Shared Sub DisplayLayoutAttribute( _
        ByVal sla As StructLayoutAttribute)
        Console.WriteLine(vbCrLf & "CharSet: " & sla.CharSet.ToString() _
            & vbCrLf & "   Pack: " & sla.Pack.ToString() _
            & vbCrLf & "   Size: " & sla.Size.ToString() _
            & vbCrLf & "  Value: " & sla.Value.ToString())
    End Sub

    Public Structure Test1
        Public B1 As Byte
        Public S As Short
        Public B2 As Byte
    End Structure

    <StructLayout(LayoutKind.Explicit, Pack:=1)> _
    Public Structure Test2
        <FieldOffset(0)> Public B1 As Byte
        <FieldOffset(1)> Public S As Short
        <FieldOffset(3)> Public B2 As Byte
    End Structure
End Class

Remarks

StructLayoutAttribute is not returned by the GetCustomAttributes method. Instead, use this property to get it.
