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

protected override void PreFilterProperties(
	IDictionary properties
)

Parameters

properties
Type: System.Collections.IDictionary

A collection implementing an IDictionary interface of the added and shadowed properties.

Control designers use methods that are derived from the ComponentDesigner.PreFilterProperties method to shadow various control properties with corresponding design-time properties that the designer implements, and to add properties to or remove properties from the Properties grid.

For controls that are derived from the BaseDataList class, the PreFilterProperties creates design-time properties to shadow the DataSource, DataMember, DataKeyField, and DataSourceID properties.

Notes to Inheritors:

Override the PreFilterProperties method to add properties to or change attributes of properties in the design-time property collection. Be sure to call the base method before performing other processing.
