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.

NoteNote

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.
