IWebFormsDocumentService Interface

Note: This API is now obsolete.

Provides methods to access services for tracking the loading state of a Web Forms document, handling events at load time, accessing a document's location, managing a document's undo service, and setting a new selection within the document.

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

[ObsoleteAttribute("The recommended alternative is System.Web.UI.Design.WebFormsRootDesigner. The WebFormsRootDesigner contains additional functionality and allows for more extensibility. To get the WebFormsRootDesigner use the RootDesigner property from your ControlDesigner.")]
public interface IWebFormsDocumentService

The IWebFormsDocumentService type exposes the following members.

Public propertyDocumentUrlGets the URL at which the document is located.
Public propertyIsLoadingGets a value indicating whether the document service is currently loading.

The IWebFormsDocumentService interface is obsolete. Use the WebFormsRootDesigner class for equivalent designer functionality.
