Remarks

ComponentDocumentDesigner provides a base class for designers of root design documents that support nested components. In addition to the methods and functionality inherited from the ComponentDesigner class, ComponentDocumentDesigner implements the IRootDesigner interface to provide a root-level design mode view for the associated component, and any nested components.

Note   The root-level design mode view for a Form or Control is typically provided by a built-in root designer. A custom IRootDesigner implementation is required to provide a view for other types of root components in design mode.

You can associate a designer with a type using a DesignerAttribute. For an overview of customizing design time behavior, see Enhancing Design-Time Support.
