LiteralDesigner Class

Provides design-time support in a visual designer for the Literal Web server control.

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

[SupportsPreviewControlAttribute(true)]
[SecurityPermissionAttribute(SecurityAction.Demand, Flags = SecurityPermissionFlag.UnmanagedCode)]
public class LiteralDesigner : ControlDesigner

The Literal control allows a text string to be used as a control on a Web page.

In a visual designer, when you switch from Source to Design view, the markup source code that describes a Literal control is parsed and a design-time version of the control is created on the design surface. When you switch back to Source view, the design-time control is persisted to the markup source code and edited into the markup for the Web page. The LiteralDesigner class provides design-time support for the Literal control.

The OnComponentChanged method is called when there is a design-time change to the associated Literal control.

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