DesignerGeneratedAttribute Class

When applied to a class, the compiler implicitly calls a component-initializing method from the default synthetic constructor.


Namespace:  Microsoft.VisualBasic.CompilerServices

The DesignerGeneratedAttribute type exposes the following members.

Public methodDesignerGeneratedAttributeInitializes a new instance of the DesignerGeneratedAttribute attribute.

Public methodEqualsInfrastructure. Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this instance. (Inherited from Attribute.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodMatchWhen overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)
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.
