Namespace:  System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public abstract class ComponentEditor

NoteNote:

The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: SharedState. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.

A component editor is used to edit a component as a whole and can be used to implement a user interface similar to that of the property pages. You associate a component editor with a component by using the EditorAttribute attribute.

Notes to Inheritors:

When you inherit from this class, you must override the EditComponent method.

The following code example demonstrates an example ComponentEditor implementation.
