IDesignerFilter.PostFilterProperties Method

When overridden in a derived class, allows a designer to change or remove items from the set of properties that it exposes through a TypeDescriptor.

[Visual Basic]
Sub PostFilterProperties( _
   ByVal properties As IDictionary _
void PostFilterProperties(
   IDictionary properties
void PostFilterProperties(
   IDictionary* properties
function PostFilterProperties(
   properties : IDictionary


The PropertyDescriptor objects that represent the properties of the class of the component. The keys in the dictionary of properties are property names.


This method provides a way to change or remove 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 PreFilterProperties.

Notes to Implementers:  You can directly filter the dictionary that is accessible through the properties parameter, or you can leave it unchanged. If you are overriding this method, call the base implementation after you perform your own filtering.
