IControlDesignerAccessor Interface

Provides access to a control designer to store temporary design-time data associated with a control.

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

public interface IControlDesignerAccessor

The IControlDesignerAccessor type exposes the following members.

Public propertyUserDataWhen implemented, gets a collection of information that can be accessed by a control designer.

Public methodGetDesignModeStateWhen implemented, gets the state from the control during use on the design surface.
Public methodSetDesignModeStateWhen implemented, sets control state before rendering it on the design surface.
Public methodSetOwnerControlWhen implemented, specifies the control that acts as the owner to the control implementing this method.

The property and methods defined in the IControlDesignerAccessor interface offer a convenient way for the control designer to access a control for passing and retrieving temporary design-time data. The interface is implemented by the Control class. Control designers use the implementation of this interface to access the control.

Temporary design-time data is not persisted with the control itself. To persist design-time data for a control, you should retrieve the contents of the UserData property and store them in a designer-specific location.
