ChildAttribute Class

Custom attribute that, when applied to a field or automatic property, specifies that the object assigned to this field or property is a child of the instance of the declaring type.

Namespace: PostSharp.Patterns.Model
Assembly: PostSharp.Patterns.Aggregation.dll
public sealed class ChildAttribute : MemberRelationshipAttribute, IValidableAnnotation


Name Description

Initializes a new instance of the ChildAttribute class.


Name Description

Determines whether the behaviors applied to the declaring type of the target field should be applied to the object assigned this field. The default value of this property is false, which means that behaviors such as Recordable or threading models will be applied to children (resulting in build- or run-time exception if it is not possible). When it is set to true, behaviors will not be propagated. When applied to a field of collection type, the value applies to collection items.


Determines whether the type of the target field or property should be validated at build-time against the rules of aspects that rely on the Aggregatable model, such as the Recordable aspect or the threading model aspects. If this property is set to true, validation will be performed at runtime only.


Determines whether the value assigned to the field or property is a parent surrogate. The Parent property of children of a parent surrogate are set to the parent of the parent surrogate, instead of to the field itself.


Determines the kind of relationship between items
