Attributes (Visual Basic)

Visual Basic provides several attributes that allow objects to interoperate with unmanaged code, and one attribute that enables module members to be accessed without the module name. The following table lists the attributes used by Visual Basic.

Attribute Description
ComClassAttribute Instructs the compiler to add metadata that allows a class to be exposed as a COM object.
HideModuleNameAttribute Allows the module members to be accessed using only the qualification needed for the module.
VBFixedArrayAttribute Indicates that an array in a structure or non-local variable should be treated as a fixed-length array.
VBFixedStringAttribute Indicates that a string should be treated as if it were fixed length.
