In a visual designer, when you switch from Source to Design view, the markup source code that describes the ToolZone 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 properties of the ToolZoneDesigner class provide the following functionality:
