public EnvDTE.CodeAttribute AddAttribute (string Name, string Value, object Position);
abstract member AddAttribute : string * string * obj -> EnvDTE.CodeAttribute
Public Function AddAttribute (Name As String, Value As String, Optional Position As Object) As CodeAttribute
Parameters

Examples

The following example demonstrates how to use the AddAttribute method.

public static void AddAttribute(EnvDTE80.DTE2 dte)  
{  
    TextSelection objTextSel;  
    EnvDTE80.CodeEvent codeEvent;  
    objTextSel = (TextSelection)dte.ActiveDocument.Selection;  
    codeEvent = (EnvDTE80.CodeEvent)objTextSel.ActivePoint.get_CodeElement(vsCMElement.vsCMElementEvent);  

    codeEvent.AddAttribute("Obsolete", "\"NewAttribute\", true", 1);  
    string str = "";  
    foreach (CodeElement ce in codeEvent.Attributes)  
        str += "
" + ce.FullName; MessageBox.Show("
AddAttribute method: " + str, "Testing CodeEvent"); }

Remarks

Note

The values of code model elements such as classes, structs, functions, attributes, delegates, and so forth can be non-deterministic after making certain kinds of edits, meaning that their values cannot be relied upon to always remain the same.
