This method is called when a user requests a set of properties for a component. The properties are added to the dictionary with the property names as the keys and the corresponding PropertyDescriptor objects as the values. Implementers of this service can add, remove, or alter property entries in the dictionary.Notes to Implementers
Return false only when necessary, because repeated queries to the type descriptor filter service can decrease performance.
