For example, with the declarations:

c# Example

        [assembly: ResolutionGroupName ("com.YourCompany")]
        [assembly: ExportEffect (typeof (ShadowEffect), "ShadowEffect")]

Then the code below will add the effect to a button:

c# Example

        [var button = new Button { Text = "I have a shadow" };
button.Effects.Add (Effect.Resolve ("com.YourCompany.ShadowEffect"));
