BulletedListDesigner.UsePreviewControl Property


Gets a value indicating whether the designer should use a temporary copy rather than the actual control that is associated with the designer to generate the design-time markup.

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

protected override bool UsePreviewControl { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

Always true.

Because the UsePreviewControl property is always true, the designer uses a View control that contains a temporary copy of the associated BulletedList control to generate the design-time markup. The View control does not affect any persistence for the BulletedList. If the UsePreviewControl property were to return false, the designer would use the associated BulletedList itself to generate the design-time markup.

Notes to Inheritors:

You can override the UsePreviewControl property to return false or to determine its value based on whether the control is marked with a class-level SupportsPreviewControlAttribute object. If the UsePreviewControl property is not overridden, the BulletedListDesigner object ignores the SupportsPreviewControlAttribute.
