The class provides information about a particular class, given an instance of that class. For example, given a DataSet object, a GridView object, or an instance of a custom class that you create, the methods and properties provide information about the class from which the object derives. It does not provide information about the specific instance, but about the class.
The class is used by custom control designers to assist in preparing sample data for previewing custom controls.
