The GetDesignTimeValue method is a helper method used to determine what value to display for a field when rendering the BoundField object in a designer. If real data cannot be retrieved from the data source at design time, the value returned by this method is displayed instead.

NoteNote:

This method is used primarily by control developers.

Notes to Inheritors:

When extending the BoundField class, you can override this method to return a different value to display for the field in a designer.
