Properties
  NameDescription
Public property TypeIdWhen implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public property VisibleGets a value indicating whether the column type is visible in the DataGridView designer.
Top
Methods
  NameDescription

Public method GetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Overrides AttributeGetHashCode.)
Public method GetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public method IsDefaultAttributeGets a value indicating whether this attribute instance is equal to the Default attribute value. (Overrides AttributeIsDefaultAttribute.)
Public method MatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public method ToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)
Top
Fields
  NameDescription
Public field Static member DefaultThe default DataGridViewColumnDesignTimeVisibleAttribute value, which is Yes, indicating that the column is visible in the DataGridView designer.
Public field Static member NoA DataGridViewColumnDesignTimeVisibleAttribute value indicating that the column is not visible in the DataGridView designer.

Explicit Interface Implementations
  NameDescription
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _AttributeGetIDsOfNamesMaps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _AttributeGetTypeInfoRetrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _AttributeGetTypeInfoCountRetrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1). (Inherited from Attribute.)
Explicit interface implemetation Private method _AttributeInvokeProvides access to properties and methods exposed by an object. (Inherited from Attribute.)

Remarks

By default, types derived from DataGridViewColumn appear in DataGridView control-specific parts of the Visual Studio designer, but inherit a DesignTimeVisibleAttribute of No to prevent them from appearing in other parts of the designer. This is necessary because the DataGridViewColumn type implements the IComponent interface, which normally makes an instance of the type appear in the designer.

Use this attribute to prevent a DataGridViewColumn type from appearing in the DataGridView control-specific designer.
