Property Value

Type: System.String

A localized description of the control type, such as "button".

In the following example, all control types are found by reflection, and their LocalizedControlType properties are output along with other information.

/// <summary>
/// Obtains information about patterns supported by control types.
/// Control types are obtained by reflection.
/// </summary>
