Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)
The Visual Studio .NET design environment uses this method to start the initialization of a component that is used on a form or used by another component. The EndInit method ends the initialization. Using the BeginInit and EndInit methods prevents the control from being used before it is fully initialized.
