IMetadataAware Interface


Defines a method that must be implemented by classes that are metadata-aware.

public interface class IMetadataAware
public interface IMetadataAware
type IMetadataAware = interface
Public Interface IMetadataAware


This interface enables attributes to contribute to the process of creating model metadata without requiring a custom metadata provider. It is used by the AssociatedMetadataProvider class, so this behavior is automatically inherited by all classes that derive from the AssociatedMetadataProvider class (notably the DataAnnotationsModelMetadataProvider class).



Enables metadata-aware attributes to perform required processing of metadata after the metadata is created.
