Using Attributes to Hide a Method from Intellisense

Provided by Molly Pell, Senior Systems Analyst

The .NET Framework provides a mechanism for annotating programming elements using Attributes. Attributes allow you to add descriptive annotations to methods, enforce constraints, determine run-time behavior, and more. The .NET Framework includes several useful built-in Attributes, and even allows you to create your own Attributes for further customization.

One interesting example is using an attribute to hide a method from Intellisense, as shown below:

Public Sub myHiddenMethod()

End Sub

// C#
public void myHiddenMethod()

Thank you! Thank you! I just finished reading this document, which was part of a link in the recent Buzz newsletter. I have printed it for others to read, especially those skeptical on the powers of Access and its capabilities.
