@MemberAttribute annotation, indicates the presence of a hidden member attribute; allows specifying arbitrary VB_Attribute for members. Use the quick-fixes to "Rubberduck Opportunities" code inspections to synchronize annotations and attributes.

VB_AttributeIdentifier The literal identifier name of the member VB_Attribute.
ValuesParamArray The comma-separated attribute values, as applicable.

The @MemberAttribute annotation cannot be used at module level. This separate annotation disambiguates any potential scoping issues that present themselves when the same name is used for both scopes. This annotation may be used with module variable targets.


Each example is a self-contained MCVE showing the feature in a single specific scenario.

Standard Module
Named Module1 by default, these are general-purpose standard procedural modules.
Class Module
Named Class1 by default, these modules define the default interface for an object of that type.
Predeclared Class
A class module with its VB_PredeclaredId attribute set to True (with or without a @PredeclaredId annotation).
Interface Module
Abstract interfaces are class modules (with or without an @Interface annotation) whose default interface is not a class type intended to be instantiated.
UserForm Module
A predeclared class with a design-time visual designer using the MSForms UI framework.
Document Module
Owned by the host application, these class modules belong to the host document and may handle various events fired by the host application.

Class1 (code pane)

Option Explicit
'@MemberAttribute VB_Description, "Does something"
Public Sub DoSomething()
End Sub

Class1 (synchronized, hidden attributes shown)

Option Explicit
'@MemberAttribute VB_Description, "Does something"
Public Sub DoSomething()
    Attribute DoSomething.VB_Description = "Does something"
End Sub
