Using Barcode encoder for VS .NET Control to generate, create PDF 417 image in .NET applications.
The assembly attributes define things such as company, product, and assembly version number Similar to assembly, identifying an attribute usage as module requires prefixing it with module: The restriction on assembly and module attributes is that they appear after the using directive but before any namespace or class declarations Return attributes, such as the one shown in Listing 1710, appear before a method declaration but use the same type of syntax structure

In addition to assembly: and return:, C# allows for explicit target identifications of module:, class:, and method:, corresponding to attributes that decorate the module, class, and method class: and method:, however, are optional, as demonstrated earlier One of the conveniences of using attributes is that the language takes into consideration the attribute naming convention, which is to place Attribute at the end of the name However, in all the attribute uses in the preceding listings, no such suffix appears, despite the fact that each attribute used follows the naming convention This is because although the full name (DescriptionAttribute, AssemblyVersionAttribute, and so on) is allowed when applying an attribute, C# makes the suffix optional and generally, no such suffix appears when applying an attribute; it appears only when defining one or using the attribute inline (such as typeof(DescriptionAttribute))

Custom Attributes Defining a custom attribute is relatively trivial Attributes are objects; therefore, to define an attribute, you need to define a class The characteristic that turns a general class into an attribute is that it derives from SystemAttribute Therefore, you can create a CommandLineSwitchRequiredAttribute class, as shown in Listing 1711

With that simple definition, you now can use the attribute as demonstrated in Listing 177 So far, no code responds to the attribute; therefore, the Out property that includes the attribute will have no effect on command-line parsing

Looking for Attributes In addition to providing properties for reflecting on a type s members, Type includes methods to retrieve the Attributes decorating that type Similarly, all the reflection types (PropertyInfo and MethodInfo, for example) include members for retrieving a list of attributes that decorate a type Listing 1712 defines a method to return a list of required switches that are missing from the command line

GTIN - 128 Encoder In Java
Using Barcode creator for Java Control to generate, create UCC.EAN - 128 image in Java applications.
The code that checks for an attribute is relatively simple Given a PropertyInfo object (obtained via reflection), you call GetCustomAttributes() and specify the attribute sought, followed by whether to check any overloaded methods (Alternatively, you can call the GetCustomAttributes() method without the attribute type to return all of the attributes) Although it is possible to place code for finding the CommandLineSwitchRequiredAttribute attribute within the CommandLineHandler s code directly, it makes for better object encapsulation to place the code within the CommandLineSwitchRequiredAttribute class itself This is frequently the pattern for custom attributes What better location to place code for finding an attribute than in a static method on the attribute class

Using Barcode creation for Java Control to generate, create DataMatrix image in Java applications.
Initializing an Attribute through a Constructor The call to GetCustomAttributes() returns an array of objects that will successfully cast to an Attribute array However, since the attribute in this example didn t have any instance members, the only metadata information it provided in the returned attribute was whether it appeared Attributes can also encapsulate data, however Listing 1713 defines a CommandLineAliasAttribute attribute This is another custom attribute, and provides alias command-line options For example, you can provide command-line support for /Help or / as an abbreviation Similarly, /S could provide an
