Thread Safety

Public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are safe for multithreaded operations. Instance members are not guaranteed to be thread-safe.


This is the most common type of object definition; RootObjectDefinition instances do not derive from a parent IObjectDefinition, and usually (but not always - see below) have an ObjectType and (optionally) some ConstructorArgumentValues and IPropertyValues.

Note that RootObjectDefinition instances do not have to specify an ObjectType : This can be useful for deriving ChildObjectDefinition instances from such definitions, each with it's own ObjectType, inheriting common property values and other settings from the parent.
