System_CAPS_pubmethodDesignTimeVisibleAttribute(Boolean)

Creates a new DesignTimeVisibleAttribute with the Visible property set to the given value in visible.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubpropertyTypeId

When implemented in a derived class, gets a unique identifier for this Attribute.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubpropertyVisible

Gets or sets whether the component should be shown at design time.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethodEquals(Object)

Returns a value that indicates whether this instance is equal to a specified object.(Overrides Attribute.Equals(Object).)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetHashCode()

Returns the hash code for this instance.(Overrides Attribute.GetHashCode().)

System_CAPS_pubmethodGetType()

Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodIsDefaultAttribute()

Gets a value indicating if this instance is equal to the Default value.(Overrides Attribute.IsDefaultAttribute().)

System_CAPS_pubmethodMatch(Object)

When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubmethodToString()

Returns a string that represents the current object.(Inherited from Object.)

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubfieldSystem_CAPS_staticDefault

The default visibility which is Yes.

System_CAPS_pubfieldSystem_CAPS_staticNo

Marks a component as not visible in a visual designer.

System_CAPS_pubfieldSystem_CAPS_staticYes

Marks a component as visible in a visual designer.

NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetIDsOfNames(Guid, IntPtr, UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Maps a set of names to a corresponding set of dispatch identifiers.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfo(UInt32, UInt32, IntPtr)

Retrieves the type information for an object, which can be used to get the type information for an interface.(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.GetTypeInfoCount(UInt32)

Retrieves the number of type information interfaces that an object provides (either 0 or 1).(Inherited from Attribute.)

System_CAPS_pubinterfaceSystem_CAPS_privmethod_Attribute.Invoke(UInt32, Guid, UInt32, Int16, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr, IntPtr)

Provides access to properties and methods exposed by an object.(Inherited from Attribute.)

The DesignTimeVisibleAttribute is a hint to the Designer. The Designer will ignore this attribute for components that have a UI presence. It can only be applied to classes.

The DesignTimeVisibleAttribute is most useful when you have a control that accepts child components. For example, the System.Windows.Forms.TreeView control's node items should not appear in the component tray because they are drawn by the System.Windows.Forms.TreeView control.
