Remarks

The AnchorEditor provides a design-time user interface for configuring an Anchor property. An Anchor property is typically used to determine which sides of the container a control is bound to. This class provides a drop-down graphical control that allows the user to specify which sides of the container to anchor the control to.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following code example uses an EditorAttribute to associate the System.Drawing.AnchorEditor with a property.

[Visual Basic] 
<EditorAttribute(GetType(System.Windows.Forms.Design.AnchorEditor), GetType(System.Drawing.Design.UITypeEditor))>  _
Public Property testAnchor() As System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles
   Get
      Return anchor
   End Get
   Set
      anchor = value
   End Set
End Property
Private anchor As AnchorStyles

[C#] 
[EditorAttribute(typeof(System.Windows.Forms.Design.AnchorEditor), typeof(System.Drawing.Design.UITypeEditor))]
public System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles testAnchor
{
    get
    {
        return anchor;
    }
    set
    {
        anchor = value;
    }
}
private AnchorStyles anchor;       

[C++] 
public:
    [EditorAttribute(__typeof(System::Windows::Forms::Design::AnchorEditor),
        __typeof(System::Drawing::Design::UITypeEditor))]
    __property System::Windows::Forms::AnchorStyles get_testAnchor() {
        return anchor;
    }
    [EditorAttribute(__typeof(System::Windows::Forms::Design::AnchorEditor),
        __typeof(System::Drawing::Design::UITypeEditor))]
    __property void set_testAnchor(System::Windows::Forms::AnchorStyles value) {
        anchor = value;
    }
private:
    AnchorStyles  anchor;
