Microsoft Silverlight will reach end of support after October 2021. Learn more.
Specifies the name of a key container within the CSP containing the key pair used to generate a strong name.
Assembly: mscorlib (in mscorlib.dll)
'Declaration <ComVisibleAttribute(True)> _ <AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly, Inherited := False)> _ Public NotInheritable Class AssemblyKeyNameAttribute _ Inherits Attribute
[ComVisibleAttribute(true)] [AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Assembly, Inherited = false)] public sealed class AssemblyKeyNameAttribute : Attribute
The AssemblyKeyNameAttribute type exposes the following members.
|AssemblyKeyNameAttribute||Initializes a new instance of the AssemblyKeyNameAttribute class with the name of the container holding the key pair used to generate a strong name for the assembly being attributed.|
|KeyName||Gets the name of the container having the key pair that is used to generate a strong name for the attributed assembly.|
|Equals||Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Match||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. (Inherited from Object.)|
When building a strong-named assembly, the author must supply either this attribute or AssemblyKeyFileAttribute.
An example of the syntax is [assembly:AssemblyKeyNameAttribute("myContainer")].
