Initializes a newly created component.

public override void InitializeNewComponent(
	IDictionary defaultValues


Type: System.Collections.IDictionary

A name/value dictionary of default values to apply to properties. May be null if no default values are specified.

The ControlDesigner class overrides this method. It will look at the default property for the control and, if it is of type string, it will set this property's value to the name of the component. It only does this if the designer has been configured with this option in the options service. This method also connects the control to its parent and positions it. If you override this method, you should always call base.
