C# Question

Can attributes be added dynamically in C#?

Is it possible to add attributes at runtime or to change the value of an attribute at runtime?

Answer

Attributes are static metadata. Assemblies, modules, types, members, parameters, and return values aren't first-class objects in C# (e.g., the System.Type class is merely a reflected representation of a type). You can get an instance of an attribute for a type and change the properties if they're writable but that won't affect the attribute as it is applied to the type.
