The following code example creates the MyImage class. The class is marked with an that specifies the ImageEditor as its editor.
The following code example creates an instance of the MyImage class, gets the attributes for the class, and then prints the name of the editor used by myNewImage.
Public Shared Sub Main() ' Creates a new component. Dim myNewImage As New MyImage() ' Gets the attributes for the component. Dim attributes As AttributeCollection = TypeDescriptor.GetAttributes(myNewImage) ' Prints the name of the editor by retrieving the EditorAttribute ' from the AttributeCollection. Dim myAttribute As EditorAttribute = CType(attributes(GetType(EditorAttribute)), EditorAttribute) Console.WriteLine(("The editor for this class is: " & myAttribute.EditorTypeName)) End Sub 'Main
