MenuDesigner.UsePreviewControl Property

Gets a value indicating whether the designer should use a copy of the associated control or use the control itself 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 copy of the associated Menu control to generate the design-time markup. The View control does not affect any persistence for the Menu object.

If the UsePreviewControl property has been overridden to return false, the designer uses the associated Menu object itself to generate the design-time markup, and design-time changes to the control are persisted to the page markup source.

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 attribute. If the UsePreviewControl is not overridden, the Menu ignores the SupportsPreviewControlAttribute.
