UnmanagedCallConvAttribute Class

Definition

Provides an equivalent to UnmanagedCallersOnlyAttribute for native functions declared in .NET.

public ref class UnmanagedCallConvAttribute sealed : Attribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple=false, Inherited=false)]
public sealed class UnmanagedCallConvAttribute : Attribute
[<System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Method, AllowMultiple=false, Inherited=false)>]
type UnmanagedCallConvAttribute = class

Examples

The following examples declare p/invokes using the UnmanagedCallConvAttribute to specify the calling convention.

Using the cdecl calling convention:

// Target will be invoked using the cdecl calling convention
[UnmanagedCallConv(CallConvs = new Type[] { typeof(CallConvCdecl) })]
[DllImport("NativeLibrary", EntryPoint = "native_function_cdecl")]
internal static extern int NativeFunction(int arg);

// Target will be invoked using the cdecl calling convention and with the GC transition suppressed
[UnmanagedCallConv(CallConvs = new Type[] { typeof(CallConvCdecl), typeof(CallConvSuppressGCTransition) })]
[DllImport("NativeLibrary", EntryPoint = "native_function_cdecl")]
internal static extern int NativeFunction_NoGCTransition(int arg);

Using the stdcall calling convention:

// Target will be invoked using the stdcall calling convention
[UnmanagedCallConv(CallConvs = new Type[] { typeof(CallConvStdcall) })]
[DllImport("NativeLibrary", EntryPoint = "native_function_stdcall")]
internal static extern int NativeFunction(int arg);

// Target will be invoked using the stdcall calling convention and with the GC transition suppressed
[UnmanagedCallConv(CallConvs = new Type[] { typeof(CallConvStdcall), typeof(CallConvSuppressGCTransition) })]
[DllImport("NativeLibrary", EntryPoint = "native_function_stdcall")]
internal static extern int NativeFunction_NoGCTransition(int arg);

Remarks

When this attribute is applied to a method with DllImportAttribute where CallingConvention is either not set or set to Winapi, the .NET runtime will use CallConvs to determine the calling convention of the p/invoke.

This attribute is ignored if applied to a method without DllImportAttribute or with CallingConvention set to something other than Winapi.

Constructors

UnmanagedCallConvAttribute()

Initializes a new UnmanagedCallConvAttribute instance.

Fields

CallConvs

Optional. Types indicating calling conventions for the unmanaged target.

Properties

TypeId

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