Properties

Name Description

Methods

Name Description
Public method Equals Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method GetHashCode Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method IsDefaultAttribute When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method Match When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Explicit Interface Implementations

Name Description
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method System#Runtime#InteropServices#_Attribute#GetIDsOfNames Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method System#Runtime#InteropServices#_Attribute#GetTypeInfo Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method System#Runtime#InteropServices#_Attribute#GetTypeInfoCount Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetationPrivate method System#Runtime#InteropServices#_Attribute#Invoke Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

Remarks

Test methods marked with the TestMethodAttribute are unavailable if the class that contains them is not marked with the TestClassAttribute. The test class is not valid without the TestClassAttribute.

This attribute can be specified on a class. Only one instance of this attribute may be applied to a class.

By default, this attribute is used in generated code.

Thread Safety

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
