A visual designer host, such as Visual Studio 2005, uses the ConnectionStringsExpressionEditor class to select a connection string from the connectionStrings configuration section.

The ConnectionStringsExpressionEditor class is derived from the ExpressionEditor class, and although it is public for technical reasons, there is no advantage in deriving from it.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
