ExportAttribute Constructor (String)

Initializes a new instance of the ExportAttribute class, exporting the type or member marked with this attribute under the specified contract name.

Namespace:  System.ComponentModel.Composition
Assembly:  System.ComponentModel.Composition (in System.ComponentModel.Composition.dll)

Syntax

'Declaration
Public Sub New ( _
    contractName As String _
)
public ExportAttribute(
    string contractName
)

Parameters

  • contractName
    Type: System.String
    The contract name that is used to export the type or member marked with this attribute, or nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) or an empty string ("") to use the default contract name.

Remarks

The default contract name is the result of calling the GetContractName method on the property or field type, or on the type that this is marked with this attribute.

Methods marked with this attribute must specify a contract name or a type by using either ExportAttribute(String) or ExportAttribute(Type).

The contract name is compared by using the Ordinal property to perform a case-sensitive, non-linguistic comparison.
