LinqDataSourceDesigner Class

Provides design-time support in a visual designer for the LinqDataSource control.

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

Public Class LinqDataSourceDesigner _
	Inherits DataSourceDesigner
Dim instance As LinqDataSourceDesigner

In a visual designer, when you switch to a designer view (such as Design view in Visual Studio), the LinqDataSource control markup is parsed. A design-time version of the control is then created on the design surface. When you switch to source view, the design-time control is persisted as the markup for the Web page.

The LinqDataSourceDesigner class provides design-time support for the LinqDataSource control in a visual designer.

Notes to Inheritors:

To provide commands in a derived class for the action list menu at design time, you must override the ActionLists property. For this property, return a custom DesignerActionListCollection object that contains items that derive from the DesignerActionList object.

For more information, see the DataSourceDesigner class.

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