Syntax

Public Overrides Function GetCustomAttributes ( _
    attributeType As Type, _
    inherit As Boolean _
) As Object()
public override Object[] GetCustomAttributes(
    Type attributeType,
    bool inherit
)

Parameters

  • attributeType
    Type: System..::.Type
    A Type representing the type of custom attribute to return.
  • inherit
    Type: System..::.Boolean
    true to search the method's inheritance chain to find the custom attributes; false to check only the current method.

Return Value

Type: array<System..::.Object>[]()[]
An array of objects representing the attributes of the method that are of type attributeType or derive from type attributeType.

Implements

ICustomAttributeProvider..::.GetCustomAttributes(Type, Boolean)

Exceptions

Exception Condition
ArgumentNullException

attributeType is nullNothingnullptra null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Remarks

For dynamic methods, specifying true for inherit has no effect, because the method is not declared in a type.

Note

Custom attributes are not currently supported on dynamic methods. The only attribute returned is MethodImplAttribute; you can get the method implementation flags more easily using the GetMethodImplementationFlags method.
