PanelDesigner Class

NOTE: This API is now obsolete.

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

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

public class PanelDesigner extends ReadWriteControlDesigner

The Panel control is used as a container for other controls, especially when controls are generated programmatically.

The PanelDesigner class provides design-time support for Panel controls in a visual designer. However, for all new implementations of the Panel control, use the PanelContainerDesigner instead of the PanelDesigner.

In a visual designer, when you switch from Source to Design view, the markup source code that describes the associated Panel 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 markup source code and edited into the markup for the Web page.

The MapPropertyToStyle method maps a specified property and value to a specified markup style. The OnBehaviorAttached method provides notification when a behavior is attached to the designer.

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