DesignerCommandSet Class

Represents a base class for design-time tools, not derived from ComponentDesigner, that provide smart tag or designer verb capabilities.

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

public class DesignerCommandSet

The ComponentDesigner class provides the ActionLists and Verbs properties to query for the DesignerActionList and DesignerVerb collections, respectively. However, if a design-time tool author decides not to derive from this class, the DesignerCommandSet class represents an alternative base class to provide this functionality.

The DesignerCommandSet class contains only three members, described in the following table.

Public member

Description

GetCommands

Returns the collection of either the smart tags or designer verbs associated with the designed component. The base implementation returns null.

ActionLists

Gets the collection of all the smart tags associated with the designed component. The base implementation simply calls GetCommands.

Verbs

Gets the collection of all the designer verbs associated with the designed component. The base implementation simply calls GetCommands.

A DesignerCommandSet should be added as a site-specific service. Externally, a service of this type should first be queried to discover smart tag and designer verb functionality. If this service is not found, then the IDesigner.Verbs property should be used instead. This procedure provides a path for backwards compatibility.
