TypeAttributes

Synopsis

These attributes can be applied to a type. A type is either a class or interface, so either Class or Interface must be set. Most of the modifiers share the same keywords with C#, so they are easy to understand. The values prefixed with Nested indicate a class that is nested as well as its visibility.
