Assembly:  Microsoft.VisualBasic (in Microsoft.VisualBasic.dll)

[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.Class, Inherited = false)]
public class DesignerGeneratedAttribute : Attribute

The DesignerGeneratedAttribute type exposes the following members.

Public methodDesignerGeneratedAttributeInitializes a new instance of the DesignerGeneratedAttribute attribute.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

This attribute instructs the compiler to implicitly calls a private InitializeComponent method from the default synthetic constructor. The compiler will also verify that this method is called from user defined constructors and report a warning or error it is not. The Visual Studio Integrated Development Environment will honor this attribute when generating code on behalf of the user.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
