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

public abstract class WebFormsReferenceManager

The WebFormsReferenceManager base class is implemented by designer hosts to provide access to types, directives, and user controls defined in a Web project document. A control designer class can use the WebFormsReferenceManager to access the definitions in the current document, and to add a new tag prefix to the current document.

You access the WebFormsReferenceManager services supplied by the designer host through the ReferenceManager property of a WebFormsRootDesigner implementation. The WebFormsRootDesigner implementation can be accessed in two ways:

System.Object
  System.Web.UI.Design.WebFormsReferenceManager
