PropertyDescriptor.GetValue Method

When overridden in a derived class, gets the current value of the property on a component.

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

public abstract Object GetValue(
	Object component
)

Parameters

component
Type: System.Object

The component with the property for which to retrieve the value.

Return Value

Type: System.Object
The value of a property for a given component.

Typically, this method is implemented through reflection.

This method automatically calls the pre-change method, OnComponentChanging, and post-change method, OnComponentChanged, of the IComponentChangeService.

Notes to Inheritors

When you override this method, it gets the current value of the property by invoking a "GetMyProperty" method that you need to implement. An exception in that method should pass through.
