ControlDesigner.SetViewFlags Method

Assigns the specified bitwise ViewFlags enumeration to the specified flag value.

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

protected void SetViewFlags(
	ViewFlags viewFlags,
	bool setFlag


Type: System.Web.UI.Design.ViewFlags
A ViewFlags value.
Type: System.Boolean
true to set the flag, false to remove the flag.

There are several flags that can be set. For example, use the SetViewFlags method to set the DesignTimeHtmlRequiresLoadComplete value of the current ViewControl property for the control designer, instead of the obsolete DesignTimeHtmlRequiresLoadComplete property.

The following code example shows how to use the SetViewFlags method to indicate that the template is in editing mode.

public override void Initialize(IComponent component)
    // Initialize the base
    // Turn on template editing
    SetViewFlags(ViewFlags.TemplateEditing, true);
