Represents an abstract class that provides properties for objects that do not have properties.


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

protected abstract class SimplePropertyDescriptor : PropertyDescriptor

The TypeConverter.SimplePropertyDescriptor type exposes the following members.

Protected methodTypeConverter.SimplePropertyDescriptor(Type, String, Type)Initializes a new instance of the TypeConverter.SimplePropertyDescriptor class.
Protected methodTypeConverter.SimplePropertyDescriptor(Type, String, Type, Attribute[])Initializes a new instance of the TypeConverter.SimplePropertyDescriptor class.

Protected propertyAttributeArrayGets or sets an array of attributes. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Public propertyAttributesGets the collection of attributes for this member. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Public propertyCategoryGets the name of the category to which the member belongs, as specified in the CategoryAttribute. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Public propertyComponentTypeGets the type of component to which this property description binds. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.ComponentType.)
Public propertyConverterGets the type converter for this property. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public propertyDescriptionGets the description of the member, as specified in the DescriptionAttribute. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Public propertyDesignTimeOnlyGets whether this member should be set only at design time, as specified in the DesignOnlyAttribute. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Public propertyDisplayNameGets the name that can be displayed in a window, such as a Properties window. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Public propertyIsBrowsableGets a value indicating whether the member is browsable, as specified in the BrowsableAttribute. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Public propertyIsLocalizableGets a value indicating whether this property should be localized, as specified in the LocalizableAttribute. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public propertyIsReadOnlyGets a value indicating whether this property is read-only. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.IsReadOnly.)

Protected propertyNameHashCodeGets the hash code for the name of the member, as specified in GetHashCode. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Public propertyPropertyTypeGets the type of the property. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.PropertyType.)
Public propertySerializationVisibilityGets a value indicating whether this property should be serialized, as specified in the DesignerSerializationVisibilityAttribute. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public propertySupportsChangeEventsGets a value indicating whether value change notifications for this property may originate from outside the property descriptor. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)

Public methodAddValueChangedEnables other objects to be notified when this property changes. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public methodCanResetValueReturns whether resetting the component changes the value of the component. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.CanResetValue(Object).)
Protected methodCreateAttributeCollectionCreates a collection of attributes using the array of attributes passed to the constructor. (Inherited from MemberDescriptor.)
Protected methodCreateInstanceCreates an instance of the specified type. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public methodEqualsCompares this to another object to see if they are equivalent. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Protected methodFillAttributesAdds the attributes of the PropertyDescriptor to the specified list of attributes in the parent class. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetChildProperties()Returns the default PropertyDescriptorCollection. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public methodGetChildProperties(Attribute[])Returns a PropertyDescriptorCollection using a specified array of attributes as a filter. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)

Public methodGetChildProperties(Object, Attribute[])Returns a PropertyDescriptorCollection for a given object using a specified array of attributes as a filter. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public methodGetEditorGets an editor of the specified type. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public methodGetHashCodeReturns the hash code for this object. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Protected methodGetInvocationTargetThis method returns the object that should be used during invocation of members. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodGetTypeFromNameReturns a type using its name. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public methodGetValueWhen overridden in a derived class, gets the current value of the property on a component. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Protected methodGetValueChangedHandlerRetrieves the current set of ValueChanged event handlers for a specific component (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodOnValueChangedRaises the ValueChanged event that you implemented. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public methodRemoveValueChangedEnables other objects to be notified when this property changes. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public methodResetValueResets the value for this property of the component. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.ResetValue(Object).)
Public methodSetValueWhen overridden in a derived class, sets the value of the component to a different value. (Inherited from PropertyDescriptor.)
Public methodShouldSerializeValueReturns whether the value of this property can persist. (Overrides PropertyDescriptor.ShouldSerializeValue(Object).)
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Notes to Inheritors

When you inherit from TypeConverter.SimplePropertyDescriptor, you must override the GetValue and SetValue methods.
