ReadWriteControlDesigner Class

NOTE: This API is now obsolete. The non-obsolete alternative is ContainerControlDesigner.

Extends design-time behavior for read/write server controls.

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

[ObsoleteAttribute("The recommended alternative is ContainerControlDesigner because it uses an EditableDesignerRegion for editing the content. Designer regions allow for better control of the content being edited.")]
[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.Demand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)]
public class ReadWriteControlDesigner : ControlDesigner


The ReadWriteControlDesigner class is obsolete. Use the ContainerControlDesigner class for equivalent control designer functionality.

This control designer provides the ability to drop controls onto the control for this designer.

Notes to Implementers:

Implementers of designers who would like their control to support the addition of child controls should use ReadWriteControlDesigner. If you do not want your control to support child controls, use a designer derived from ControlDesigner.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
