Discovering attributes of a object.


C

Chris Dunaway

Consider the following simple class:

Class Test
Private _MyInteger As Integer

<Description("This is my personal integer value!"), _
Category("Personal")> _
Public Property MyInteger() As Integer
Get
Return _MyInteger
End Get
Set(ByVal Value As Integer)
_MyInteger = Value
End Set
End Property

End Class

If I have an instance of this class:

Dim obj As New Test


How can I get the values of the attribute (Description and Category) from
the object instance?

The PropertyGrid does it somehow. I would like to do it as well but have
been unable to figure it out.

you can use Attribute.GetCustomAttributes(Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly,
obj.GetType)
this will give you a collection of attribute objects - one for each custom
attribute in your class.

hope this helps..
