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

protected virtual string GetDesignTimeValue()

Return Value

Type: System.String

The value to display in the designer as the field's value.

The GetDesignTimeValue method is a helper method used by the ImageField class to determine what value to display for a field when rendering an ImageField 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.

Notes to Inheritors:

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