The visual designer uses the RouteUrlExpressionEditor class together with the RouteUrlExpressionEditorSheet class to select the individual properties of a RouteUrl expression, and to combine the selected expression property values into a RouteUrl expression.

The RouteUrlExpressionEditor.GetExpressionEditorSheet method returns a RouteUrlExpressionEditorSheet object. In the expressions dialog box, when you select a control property and bind it to a RouteUrl expression, the visual designer calls the GetExpressionEditorSheet method. The visual designer uses the returned RouteUrlExpressionEditorSheet object to prompt for the RouteValues and RouteName properties. Once the properties are selected, the visual designer calls the GetExpression method to combine the properties into a RouteUrl expression string.

The RouteValues property must be specified if the RouteName property is not specified. The RouteName property must be specified if the RouteValues is not specified. Both properties may be specified.
