C# attributes are a powerful way to add declarative “metadata” to your C# code. This course will teach you what the benefits of attributes are, how to leverage prebuilt attributes, and how to create and use your own custom attributes.
C# attributes are a powerful way to add declarative “metadata” to your C# code that can be used by visual designers at design time, control code compilation at build time, customize the experience during debugging, and control program execution at run time. In this course, C# Attributes: Power and Flexibility for Your Code, you'll learn how to leverage the power of attributes in your C# applications. First, you'll learn about some of the problems attributes can help you solve. Next, you'll understand how you can benefit from some of the useful prebuilt attributes and how to provide values for attributes constructors and properties. Finally, you'll explore how to go one step further and define and use your own custom attributes to give your solutions extra power and flexibility. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have an appreciation for the power and flexibility C# attributes provide and how you can use them to expand your C# applications.
