Assembly: System.Design (in system.design.dll)
CatalogPartDesigner is a multi-purpose designer that provides design-time rendering for ImportCatalogPart and PageCatalogPart controls, which both inherit from the CatalogPart base class. CatalogPartDesigner serves as a standard control designer, adding only what customization is needed to validate the associated control and apply its design mode state to the design-time rendering.
If you have a custom PageCatalogPart control, you can create a derived designer, such as DeclarativeCatalogPartDesigner, to provide design-time rendering. You can safely override any of the members as needed; however, when overriding the CreateViewControl method, be sure to call the base implementation to avoid losing design mode state information.
CatalogPartDesigner and EditorPartDesigner share an identical interface and functionality. For an applicable code example, see the EditorPartDesigner class overview.
