ExperimentalAttribute Class

Definition

Indicates that an API is experimental and it may change in the future.

Remarks

This attribute allows call sites to be flagged with a diagnostic that indicates that an experimental feature is used. Authors can use this attribute to ship preview features in their assemblies.

Constructors

ExperimentalAttribute(String)

Initializes a new instance of the ExperimentalAttribute class, specifying the ID that the compiler will use when reporting a use of the API the attribute applies to.

Properties

DiagnosticId

Gets the ID that the compiler will use when reporting a use of the API the attribute applies to.

TypeId

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.

(Inherited from Attribute)
UrlFormat

Gets or sets the URL for corresponding documentation. The API accepts a format string instead of an actual URL, creating a generic URL that includes the diagnostic ID.

Methods

Equals(Object)

Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.

(Inherited from Attribute)
GetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.

(Inherited from Attribute)
GetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.

(Inherited from Object)
IsDefaultAttribute()

When overridden in a derived class, indicates whether the value of this instance is the default value for the derived class.

(Inherited from Attribute)
Match(Object)

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.
