public sealed class ScriptableMemberAttribute : Attribute

The ScriptableMemberAttribute type exposes the following members.


  Name Description
Public method ScriptableMemberAttribute Initializes a new instance of the ScriptableMemberAttribute class.



  Name Description
Public property EnableCreateableTypes Controls the generation of Silverlight plug-in helper methods that can be used to create wrappers around managed objects.
Public property ScriptAlias Gets or sets the name of a property, method, or event that is exposed to JavaScript code. By default, the script alias is the same as the name of the managed property, method, or event.



  Name Description
Public method Equals Infrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected method Finalize Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method GetHashCode Returns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method GetType Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method Match When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected method MemberwiseClone Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method ToString Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)



If you want to expose all properties, methods, and events that are associated with a type as scriptable, use the ScriptableTypeAttribute class instead.


The following example shows how you make a property, method, or event (PME) scriptable by applying the ScriptableMemberAttribute immediately before the name of the PME.

public class SMT_ScriptableManagedType
    [ScriptableMember]         // This is the preferred syntax
     public string GetString()
        { return "abcdefg"; }

    [ScriptableMemberAttribute]  // This is also acceptable
     public string GetString()
        { return "abcdefg"; }
