public virtual string FrameCaption { get; }
/** @property */
public String get_FrameCaption ()

public function get FrameCaption () : String

Property Value

The string used for the control frame caption at design time, if the control has a design-time caption; otherwise, an empty string ("").

The FrameCaption string is the caption that is displayed in the frame around the editable region of the control on the design surface.

The default caption for a ContainerControlDesigner frame is the ID property of the designer instance. This is typically the same as the run-time ID property of the control.

Notes to Implementers You can set a different frame caption for a control designer by deriving a class from the ContainerControlDesigner class, and then overriding the FrameCaption property.
