The MimeTypePropertyAttribute type exposes the following members.

  Name Description
Public method MimeTypePropertyAttribute Creates a new instance of the MimeTypePropertyAttribute.
  Name Description

The MimeTypePropertyAttribute takes the name of the property that holds the mime type to associate with the property specified in the MediaEntryAttribute. The property specified is automatically set to the mime type of data when a media resource associated with the media link entry is delay-loaded by the LoadProperty method.

The system also reads the mime type from this property and uses it to set the Content-Type header in a POST request for a media link entry. A media link entry is an AtomPub protocol construct for handling binary data and metadata.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
