Type: System.CollectionsIDictionary

A name/value dictionary of default values to apply to properties. May be if no default values are specified.



The InitializeNewComponent method is called when a component is first initialized, typically after being first added to a design surface.

You may perform any necessary initialization of this component, and you may ignore the defaultValues dictionary altogether.

The default implementation of this method does nothing.
