The following is the syntax −

[Conditional(
   conditionalSymbol
)]

Obsolete

This predefined attribute marks a program entity that should not be used. It enables you to inform the compiler to discard a particular target element. Here is the syntax −

[Obsolete (
   message

   message,
   iserror
)]
