Gets the design-time verbs supported by the component that is associated with the designer.

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

public virtual DesignerVerbCollection Verbs { get; }
/** @property */
public DesignerVerbCollection get_Verbs ()

public function get Verbs () : DesignerVerbCollection

Not applicable.

Property Value

A DesignerVerbCollection of DesignerVerb objects, or a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if no designer verbs are available. This default implementation always returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

This method returns a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the component has no design-time verbs.

The design-time environment typically displays verbs returned by this method in a shortcut (right-click) menu. When a user selects one of the verbs, the Invoke method of the corresponding DesignerVerb is invoked.


A design-time environment typically provides a Properties command on a component's shortcut menu. Therefore, do not include such an entry in the collection of designer-specified verbs.
