Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

abstract GetProperties : 
        attributes:Attribute[] -> PropertyDescriptorCollection


Type: System.Attribute[]

An array of type Attribute that is used as a filter.

Return Value

Type: System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptorCollection

A PropertyDescriptorCollection that represents the filtered properties for this component instance.

The properties for this instance can differ from the set of properties that the class provides. For example, if the component is sited, the site can add or remove additional properties.

If an Attribute is specified in the attributes array and the property does not have an instance of the class for that attribute, the returned collection will include the property if the Attribute is the default property.

For filtering rules, see GetProperties.
