OnMethodEntryAdvice Class
Custom attribute that, when applied on a method of an aspect class, specifies that this method is an advice having the same semantics as OnEntry(MethodExecutionArgs).
Inheritance Hierarchy

Namespace: PostSharp.Aspects.Advices
Assembly: PostSharp (in PostSharp.dll) Version: (
public sealed class OnMethodEntryAdvice : OnMethodBoundaryAdvice

The OnMethodEntryAdvice type exposes the following members.

Public methodOnMethodEntryAdvice
Initializes a new instance of the OnMethodEntryAdvice class
Public propertyApplyToStateMachine
Determines how the advice should behave when it is applied to an iterator or async methods, which are compiled into state machines.
(Inherited from OnMethodBoundaryAdvice.)
Public propertyDescription
A human-readable description of the current advice.
(Inherited from Advice.)
Public propertyLinesOfCodeAvoided
Reduction in the code lines count achieved by applying the advice instance to one code element.
(Inherited from Advice.)
Public propertyMaster
Name of the master advice method. If this property is not set, the current method is itself the master of the group. Only master methods can define selectors (Pointcut) and dependencies (AspectDependencyAttribute).
(Inherited from GroupingAdvice.)
Extension Methods
Public Extension MethodQueryInterface<T>
Gets the implementation of a specified interface for the specified object.
(Defined by QueryInterfaceExtensions.)

The method to which this custom attribute is applied must be public and must have the same signature as OnEntry(MethodExecutionArgs). However, it can be static.

If an aspect defines many advices (among OnMethodEntryAdvice , OnMethodExitAdvice , OnMethodSuccessAdvice and OnMethodExceptionAdvice ) that are meant to be applied to the same methods with consistent ordering, these advices should be grouped together (see Master property).

Note Note
Standalone advices or group masters should also be annotated by a custom attribute derived from Pointcut .
