Base class for aspects applied on types, but having the same lifetime as instances of the type to which they are applied.
Inheritance Hierarchy

Namespace:  PostSharp.Aspects
Assembly:  PostSharp (in PostSharp.dll) Version: 5.0.34.0 (5.0.34.0)
Syntax
C#
[SerializableAttribute]
public abstract class InstanceLevelAspect : TypeLevelAspect, 
	ICloneAwareAspect, IInstanceScopedAspect, IAspect

The InstanceLevelAspect type exposes the following members.

Constructors
  NameDescription

Properties
  NameDescription
Public propertyAspectPriority
Gets or sets the weaving priority of the aspect.
(Inherited from Aspect.)
Public propertyAttributeExclude
If true, indicates that this attribute removes all other instances of the same attribute type from the set of elements defined by the current instance.
(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)
Public propertyAttributeInheritance
Determines whether this attribute is inherited
(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)
Public propertyAttributePriority
Gets or sets the priority of the current attribute in case that multiple instances are defined on the same element (lower values are processed before).
(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)
Public propertyAttributeReplace
Determines whether this attribute replaces other attributes found on the target declarations.
(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)
Public propertyAttributeTargetAssemblies
Gets or sets the assemblies to which the current attribute apply.
(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)
Public propertyAttributeTargetElements
Gets or sets the kind of elements to which this custom attributes applies.
(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)
Public propertyAttributeTargetExternalMemberAttributes
Gets or sets the visibilities, scopes, virtualities, and implementation of members to which this attribute applies, when the member is external to the current module.
(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)
Public propertyAttributeTargetExternalTypeAttributes
Gets or sets the visibilities of types to which this attribute applies, when this type is external to the current module.
(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)
Public propertyAttributeTargetMemberAttributes

(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)
Public propertyAttributeTargetMembers
Gets or sets the expression specifying to which members this instance applies.
(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)
Public propertyAttributeTargetParameterAttributes
Gets or sets the passing style (by value, out or ref) of parameters to which this attribute applies.
(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)
Public propertyAttributeTargetParameters
Gets or sets the expression specifying to which parameters this instance applies.
(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)
Public propertyAttributeTargetTypeAttributes
Gets or sets the visibilities of types to which this attribute applies.

Public propertyAttributeTargetTypes
Gets or sets the expression specifying to which types this instance applies.
(Inherited from MulticastAttribute.)

Methods
  NameDescription
Public methodCompileTimeInitialize
Method invoked at build time to initialize the instance fields of the current aspect. This method is invoked before any other build-time method.
(Inherited from TypeLevelAspect.)
Public methodCompileTimeValidate(Object)
Method invoked at build time to ensure that the aspect has been applied to the right target.
(Inherited from Aspect.)
Public methodCompileTimeValidate(Object)
Method invoked at build time to ensure that the aspect has been applied to the right target.
(Inherited from TypeLevelAspect.)
Public methodCompileTimeValidate(Type)
Method invoked at build time to ensure that the aspect has been applied to the right target.
(Inherited from TypeLevelAspect.)
Protected methodCreateAspectConfiguration
Method invoked at build time to create a concrete AspectConfiguration instance specifically for the current Aspect type.
(Overrides Aspect.CreateAspectConfiguration().)
Public methodCreateInstance
Creates a new instance of the aspect based on the current instance, serving as a prototype.
Public methodGetAspectConfiguration
Method invoked at build tome to get the imperative configuration of the current Aspect.
(Inherited from Aspect.)
Public methodOnCloned
Method called after the an object enhanced by the current aspect has been cloned using MemberwiseClone(). The this parameter refers to the new aspect instance in the cloned object.
Public methodRuntimeInitialize
Initializes the current aspect.
(Inherited from TypeLevelAspect.)
Public methodRuntimeInitializeInstance
Initializes the aspect instance. This method is invoked when all system elements of the aspect (like member imports) have completed.
Protected methodSetAspectConfiguration(AspectConfiguration, Object)
Method invoked at build time to set up an AspectConfiguration object according to the current Aspect instance and a specified target element of the current aspect.
(Inherited from Aspect.)
Protected methodSetAspectConfiguration(AspectConfiguration, Object)
Method invoked at build time to set up an AspectConfiguration object according to the current Aspect instance and a specified target element of the current aspect.
(Inherited from TypeLevelAspect.)
Protected methodSetAspectConfiguration(AspectConfiguration, Type)
Method invoked at build time to set up an AspectConfiguration object according to the current Aspect instance and a specified target element of the current aspect.
(Inherited from TypeLevelAspect.)

Extension Methods
  NameDescription
Public Extension MethodQueryInterface<T>
Gets the implementation of a specified interface for the specified object.
(Defined by QueryInterfaceExtensions.)

Remarks

This class is provided for convenience. You get the same functionality by deriving your aspect class directly from TypeLevelAspect and implementing the interface IInstanceScopedAspect


See IInstanceScopedAspect for a discussion of instance-scoped aspects.


Note Note
All classes implementing IAspect should typically be marked as serializable using the custom attribute SerializableAttribute . Fields that are only used at runtime (and unknown at compile-time) should be carefully marked with the custom attribute NonSerializedAttribute . When PostSharp is used on a platform that does not support aspect serialization (such as .NET Compact Framework, Silverlight, or Windows Phone), or when another aspect serializer is used, it is not necessary to mark the aspect class as serializable. For more information, see Aspect Serialization .
