This API supports the .NET Framework infrastructure and is not intended to be used directly from your code.
Indicates that the attributed method is exposed by an unmanaged dynamic-link library (DLL) as a static entry point.

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Method, Inherited = false)] [ComVisibleAttribute(true)] public sealed class DllImportAttribute : Attribute
The DllImportAttribute type exposes the following members.
|DllImportAttribute||Initializes a new instance of the DllImportAttribute class with the name of the DLL containing the method to import.|
|Value||Infrastructure. Gets the name of the DLL file that contains the entry point.|
|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.)|
|BestFitMapping||Enables or disables best-fit mapping behavior when converting Unicode characters to ANSI characters.|
|CallingConvention||Indicates the calling convention of an entry point.|
|CharSet||Indicates how to marshal string parameters to the method and controls name mangling.|
|EntryPoint||Indicates the name or ordinal of the DLL entry point to be called.|
|ExactSpelling||Controls whether the DllImportAttribute.CharSet field causes the common language runtime to search an unmanaged DLL for entry-point names other than the one specified.|
|PreserveSig||Indicates whether unmanaged methods that have HRESULT or retval return values are directly translated or whether HRESULT or retval return values are automatically converted to exceptions.|
|SetLastError||Indicates whether the callee calls the SetLastError Win32 API function before returning from the attributed method.|
