ListControlDesigner.PreFilterProperties Method (IDictionary)


Used by the designer to remove additional properties from or add properties to the display in the Properties grid or to shadow properties of the associated control.

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

protected override void PreFilterProperties(
	IDictionary properties


Type: System.Collections.IDictionary

A collection implementing the IDictionary of the added or shadowed properties to expose for the associated control at design time.

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 ListControl object, the PreFilterProperties adds the DataFieldConverter attribute to the DataTextField and DataValueField properties of the associated control.

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.
