The visual designer calls the Initialize method when it is ready to use the designer to render the Menu control. The Initialize method and its base methods configure properties and set up events that are necessary for the operation of the designer.
The component parameter is the Menu control that is associated with this designer or a copy of that control.
The following code example shows how to override the Initialize method in a class that is inherited from the MenuDesigner class. The overridden method changes the behavior of a control that is derived from the Menu class at design time. The example throws an ArgumentException exception, if the associated control is not a MyMenu object.
publicoverridevoid Initialize(IComponent component)
// Ensure that only a MyMenu can be created in this designer.if (!(component is MyMenu))
"The component is not a MyMenu control.");
} // Initialize
