About this book

Attributes are used to modify the runtime behavior of code in the .NET Framework. Applied .NET Attributes explores the application of .NET attributes and how developers can write custom attributes that provide the maximum level of code reuse and flexibility.

Attributed programming is a feature of .NET that is still relatively unexplored and unknown. Because attributes are used to modify the runtime behavior of code in the .NET Framework, their use is extremely important and will become even more important over time. This insightful guide covers the fundamentals of attributes, common .NET attributes, the use of custom attributes, and advanced techniques.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"Before I received this book I had the same feeling the authors had … . ‘How much pages can you write about .NET Attributes?’. … The book itself indeed isn’t thick … not just covering the usage of the existing .NET Attributes, as I quickly realised when I read it, but also a wealth of background information … . I learned a lot from this book … . I’m sure I will get back to it from time to time … ." (Bob Swart, www.thedelphimagazine.com, March, 2004)
