ComponentDesigner.PostFilterProperties Method (IDictionary)


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

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

protected virtual void PostFilterProperties(
	IDictionary properties


Type: System.Collections.IDictionary

The properties for the class of the component.

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

The keys in the dictionary of properties are the names of the properties. The objects are of type PropertyDescriptor. This method is called immediately after the PreFilterProperties method.

Notes to Implementers:

You can directly filter the dictionary that is accessible through the properties 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 PostFilterProperties method. Instead, change attributes to hide items. You may also remove items in the PreFilterProperties method.
