HtmlControlDesigner.PreFilterEvents Method

Modifies the set of events that the designer exposes through a TypeDescriptor object.

[Visual Basic]
Overrides Protected Sub PreFilterEvents( _
   ByVal events As IDictionary _
protected override void PreFilterEvents(
 IDictionary events
protected: void PreFilterEvents(
 IDictionary* events
protected override function PreFilterEvents(
   events : IDictionary


An IDictionary that contains the names of the events of the component to expose.


This method provides a way to add items to the dictionary of events that a designer exposes through a TypeDescriptor.

The keys in the dictionary of events are the names of the events. The objects are of type PropertyDescriptor. This method is called immediately before PostFilterEvents.

Notes to Implementers:  You can directly modify the dictionary that is accessible through the events parameter, or you can leave it unchanged. If you are overriding this method, call the base implementation before you perform your own filtering.
