Notes to Inheritors

You inherit this class as part of a suite of classes to support your own custom data source control for hierarchical data, such as XML data. Override the Schema property to provide a custom object that is derived from the IDataSourceSchema class. Override the GetDesignTimeData method to provide sample data to the control designer at design time.
