DeclarativeCatalogPartDesigner.GetDesignTimeHtml Method

Overrides the parent method to prevent rendering of the control.

Namespace:  System.Web.UI.Design.WebControls.WebParts
Assembly:  System.Design (in System.Design.dll)

public override string GetDesignTimeHtml()

Return Value

Type: System.String
Either an empty string ("") or the value of GetEmptyDesignTimeHtml.

If there is no WebPartsTemplate associated with the control, the designer displays the standard gray box with the class name and instance name of the control. Otherwise, no design-time rendering occurs at all because the check boxes and Web Parts titles are rendered by the CatalogPartChrome instead of the DeclarativeCatalogPart itself.
