DisplayAttribute.GetShortName Method


Returns the value of the ShortName property.

 System::String ^ GetShortName();
public string GetShortName ();
public string? GetShortName ();
member this.GetShortName : unit -> string
Public Function GetShortName () As String



The localized string for the ShortName property if the ResourceType property has been specified and if the ShortName property represents a resource key; otherwise, the non-localized value of the ShortName value property.


Both the ResourceType property and ShortName properties were set, but a public static property with a name matching the ShortName value couldn't be found on the ResourceType.


The short name is used as the grid column label for a UI element that is bound to the property that is annotated with this attribute. This property returns either the literal, non-localized string, or a localized string if ResourceType is not null.
