	IDictionary defaultValues


Type: System.Collections.IDictionary

A dictionary of default property values, which are name/value pairs, with which to initialize the component's state.

The InitializeNewComponent method is called after a new component is created. It is typically called by the toolbox item itself and is used to configure the component’s default values.

This dictionary may be null if no default values are specified. If the dictionary is null, the component properties should be left in their implicit default states.
