== Branch ==


== Problem ==

Attribute classes defined in the Umbraco.Core.CodeAnnotations namespace have inconsistent constructor parameter order. By this I mean that sometimes a parameter from the single parameter constructor will appear either as the first or second parameter in a multiple parameter constructor.

The classes with multiple constructors are below, with their parameters.

||Attribute class||Constructor One Parameters||Constructor Two Parameters||Notes|| |ActionMetadataAttribute|string category|string category, string name| | |UmbracoExperimentalFeatureAttribute|string description|string trackerUrl, string description|Does not appear to be used in v8| |UmbracoObjectTypeAttribute|string objectId|string objectId, Type modelType| | |UmbracoProposedPublicAttribute|string description|string trackerUrl, string description|Does not appear to be used in v8| |UmbracoWillObsoleteAttribute|string description|string trackerUrl, string description|Only the single parameter version appears to be used in v8|

== Solution ==

The constructor parameters should stay in the same position in each overload. Luckily the "incorrect" attributes either are not used or only have a single parameter version being used. If they are to be normalised it should be done before the attributes are used too often.

PR submitted as no-one objected to the proposed changes :-)

Hi @ssougnez

The attributes classes I've changed do not exist in the v7 codebase. This PR and ticket are for v8 only. I've changed the affected version back to v8.

Hi @Andy

Sorry, the change was not intentional... I wanted to filter issues by version but I actually changed the affected version of this one. Didn’t know I could update issue created by someone else... my bad :-$
