Namespace:  System.Web.UI.Design
Assembly:  System.Design (in System.Design.dll)

protected ControlDesignerState DesignerState { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Web.UI.Design.ControlDesignerState
A DesignerState property that implements IDictionary and uses the IComponentDesignerStateService to persist state data for the associated control at design time.

The values for the DesignerState property are persisted even if the user switches from Design to Source view, or reloads the document, or closes and reopens the design host.

You can get and set values in the returned object as you would in an IDictionary object, with the values automatically persisted.
