CustomTypeDescriptor Class

Provides a simple default implementation of the ICustomTypeDescriptor interface.

Namespace:  System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)
[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, SharedState = true)]
public abstract class CustomTypeDescriptor : ICustomTypeDescriptor

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: SharedState. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

Like TypeDescriptionProvider, the CustomTypeDescriptor class relies on a parent object of type ICustomTypeDescriptor supplied during construction. This allows classes that derive from CustomTypeDescriptor to selectively override methods.

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