Methods

Name Description
static CreateLookupResourceDefinition(ExtendedAttributeResource, string) Factory method which creates an extended attribute definition with lookup. It has CalculationType equals to Lookup and can be used in Resources only. You are required to specify fieldId and alias when call this method. The field type is inferred from field id.
static CreateLookupResourceDefinition(CustomFieldType, ExtendedAttributeResource, string) Factory method which creates an extended attribute definition with lookup. It has CalculationType equals to Lookup and can be used in Resources only. You are required to specify customFieldType, fieldId and alias when call this method.
static CreateLookupTaskDefinition(ExtendedAttributeTask, string) Factory method which creates an extended attribute definition with lookup. It has CalculationType equals to Lookup and can be used in Tasks only. You are required to specify fieldId and alias when call this method. The field type is inferred from field id.
static CreateLookupTaskDefinition(CustomFieldType, ExtendedAttributeTask, string) Factory method which creates an extended attribute definition with lookup. It has CalculationType equals to Lookup and can be used in Tasks only. You are required to specify customFieldType, fieldId and alias when call this method.
static CreateResourceDefinition(ExtendedAttributeResource, string) Factory method which creates a simple extended attribute definition, which Microsoft Project shows as “None”. It has CalculationType equals to None and can be used in Resource only. You are required to specify fieldId and alias when call this method. The field type is inferred from field id.
static CreateResourceDefinition(CustomFieldType, ExtendedAttributeResource, string) Factory method which creates a simple extended attribute definition, which Microsoft Project shows as “None”. It has CalculationType equals to None and can be used in Resource only. You are required to specify customFieldType, fieldId and alias when call this method.
static CreateTaskDefinition(ExtendedAttributeTask, string) Factory method which creates a simple extended attribute definition, which Microsoft Project shows as “None”. It has CalculationType equals to None and can be used in Tasks only. You are required to specify fieldId and alias when calling this method. The field type is inferred from field id.
static CreateTaskDefinition(CustomFieldType, ExtendedAttributeTask, string) Factory method which creates a simple extended attribute definition, which Microsoft Project shows as “None”. It has CalculationType equals to None and can be used in Tasks only. You are required to specify customFieldType, fieldId and alias when calling this method.
AddLookupValue(Value) Adds a value to the internal lookup list. This is a preferable way for manipulations with the ValueList.
CreateExtendedAttribute() Creates a new extended attribute with the field ID which equals to this object’s field ID value.
CreateExtendedAttribute(bool) Creates a new extended attribute with the field ID which equals to this object’s field ID value and the specified flag value.
CreateExtendedAttribute(DateTime) Creates a new extended attribute with the field ID which equals to this object’s field ID value and the specified date value.
CreateExtendedAttribute(decimal) Creates a new extended attribute with the field ID which equals to this object’s field ID value and the specified numeric value.
CreateExtendedAttribute(Duration) Creates a new extended attribute with the field ID which equals to this object’s field ID value and the specified duration value.
CreateExtendedAttribute(string) Creates a new extended attribute with the field ID which equals to this object’s field ID value and the specified text value.
CreateExtendedAttribute(Value) Creates new extended attribute linked with specified Value item.
override Equals(object) Returns a flag indicating whether this instance is equal to the specified object.
override GetHashCode() Returns a hash code for the instance of the ExtendedAttributeDefinition class.
RemoveLookupValue(Value) Removes a value from the internal lookup list. This is a preferable way for manipulations with the ValueList.
