FilterableAttribute Class

Definition

Specifies whether the property to which the attribute is applied supports device filtering. This class cannot be inherited.

public ref class FilterableAttribute sealed : Attribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Class | System.AttributeTargets.Property)]
public sealed class FilterableAttribute : Attribute
type FilterableAttribute = class
    inherit Attribute
Public NotInheritable Class FilterableAttribute

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to apply a FilterableAttribute attribute to a property of a custom control to indicate that the property does not support device filtering.


using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Text;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

namespace Samples.AspNet.CS.Controls
{
    public class SimpleCustomControl : WebControl
    {
        private string _productID;

        // Set Filterable attribute to specify that this
        // property does not support device filtering.
        [Bindable(true)]
        [Filterable(false)]
        public string ProductID
        {
            get
            {
                return _productID;
            }
            set
            {
                _productID = value;
            }
        }
    }
}


Imports System.ComponentModel
Imports System.Web.UI

Namespace Samples.AspNet.VB.Controls

    Public Class SimpleCustomControl
        Inherits System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebControl

        Dim _productID As String

        ' Set Filterable attribute to specify that this
        ' property does not support device filtering.
        <Bindable(True), Filterable(False)> Property ProductID() As String
            Get
                Return _productID
            End Get

            Set(ByVal Value As String)
                _productID = Value
            End Set
        End Property
    End Class

End Namespace

Remarks

The FilterableAttribute attribute is applied to a property to specify whether the property supports device filtering. When a property supports device filtering, you can override the value of a property for a specific device by specifying a device filter. By default, properties are filterable, so a control developer could prevent device filtering on a property by setting the FilterableAttribute attribute to false. For more information, see Customizing for Specific Devices.

For more information about using attributes, see Attributes.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of the FilterableAttribute class, see the FilterableAttribute constructor.

Constructors

FilterableAttribute(Boolean)

Initializes a new instance of the FilterableAttribute class.

Fields

Default

Represents a predefined FilterableAttribute object with default property settings. This field is read-only.

No

Represents a predefined FilterableAttribute object that indicates that a property does not support device filtering. This field is read-only.

Yes

Represents a predefined FilterableAttribute object that indicates that a property supports device filtering. This field is read-only.

Properties

Filterable

Gets a value indicating whether the property to which the FilterableAttribute attribute is applied supports device filtering.

TypeId

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

Methods

Equals(Object)

Determines whether the current instance of the FilterableAttribute class is equal to the specified object.

GetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.

GetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
IsDefaultAttribute()

Determines whether the current instance of the FilterableAttribute class is equal to the Default attribute.

IsObjectFilterable(Object)

Determines whether the specified Object supports device filtering.

IsPropertyFilterable(PropertyDescriptor)

Determines whether a property supports device filtering.

IsTypeFilterable(Type)

Determines whether the specified data type supports device filtering.

Match(Object)

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

(Inherited from Attribute)
MemberwiseClone()

Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.

(Inherited from Object)
ToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.
