StandardCommands Class

Defines identifiers for the standard set of commands that are available to most applications.

Namespace:  System.ComponentModel.Design
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

[PermissionSetAttribute(SecurityAction.InheritanceDemand, Name = "FullTrust")]
[PermissionSetAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, Name = "FullTrust")]
[HostProtectionAttribute(SecurityAction.LinkDemand, SharedState = true)]
public class StandardCommands

NoteNote:

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: SharedState. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

This class defines CommandID identifiers for standard commands that are available to designers.

To add a command from the StandardCommands class to a designer menu, you must call the AddCommand method of an IMenuCommandService and add a MenuCommand that contains a CommandID from StandardCommands.

The following code example illustrates how to add a member of the StandardCommands class to a MenuCommand and how to add the MenuCommand to an IMenuCommandService.

[System.Security.Permissions.PermissionSet(System.Security.Permissions.SecurityAction.Demand, Name = "FullTrust")] 
public class CDesigner : System.ComponentModel.Design.ComponentDesigner 
{
    public override void Initialize(IComponent comp) 
    {
        base.Initialize(comp);

        IMenuCommandService mcs = (IMenuCommandService)comp.Site.
                    GetService(typeof(IMenuCommandService));
        MenuCommand mc = new MenuCommand(new EventHandler(OnF1Help), StandardCommands.F1Help);
        mc.Enabled = true;
        mc.Visible = true;
        mc.Supported = true;
        mcs.AddCommand(mc);
        System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("Initialize() has been invoked.");
    }

    private void OnF1Help(object sender, EventArgs e) 
    {
        System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show("F1Help has been invoked.");
    }
}
