ComponentDesigner.PostFilterAttributes Method

Allows a designer to change or remove items from the set of attributes that it exposes through a TypeDescriptor.

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

protected virtual void PostFilterAttributes(
	IDictionary attributes


Type: System.Collections.IDictionary
The attributes for the class of the component.

This method provides a way to change or remove the items within the dictionary of attributes that are exposed through a TypeDescriptor.

The keys in the dictionary of attributes are the type identifiers of the attributes, as specified by the value of their TypeId property. The objects are of type PropertyDescriptor. This method is called immediately after the PreFilterAttributes method.

Notes to Implementers

You can directly filter the dictionary that is accessible through the attributes parameter, or you can leave it unchanged. If you override this method, call the base implementation after you perform your own filtering. In addition, you must not remove items in the PostFilterAttributes method. Instead, change attributes to hide items. You may also remove items in the PreFilterAttributes method.
