The AnchorEditor provides a design-time user interface for configuring an Anchor property. An Anchor property is typically used to determine which sides of the container a control is bound to. This class provides a drop-down graphical control that allows the user to specify which sides of the container to anchor the control to.

The following code example uses an EditorAttribute to associate the AnchorEditor with a property.

[EditorAttribute(typeof(System.Windows.Forms.Design.AnchorEditor), typeof(System.Drawing.Design.UITypeEditor))]
public System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles testAnchor
{
    get
    {
        return anchor;
    }
    set
    {
        anchor = value;
    }
}
private AnchorStyles anchor;
