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.
