Provides design-time visual support for WebZone controls.
Assembly: System.Design (in System.Design.dll)
The class is the abstract base class for both WebPartZoneBaseDesigner and ToolZoneDesigner, which all the other zone designers inherit from. By inheriting directly from ControlDesigner instead of CompositeControlDesigner, it allows implementations of the GetDesignTimeHtml method that do not automatically clear the Controls collection, thus enabling the designer to render exceptions from child controls.
Like other designers in this namespace, overrides the UsePreviewControl property to always return true.Notes to Inheritors:
The class does not have a public constructor, so you cannot inherit from it directly outside the System.Web.UI.Design.WebControls.WebParts namespace. Instead, use WebPartZoneBaseDesigner or ToolZoneDesigner.
