[Visual Basic] 
<EditorAttribute(GetType(System.Windows.Forms.Design.FileNameEditor), GetType(System.Drawing.Design.UITypeEditor))>  _
Public Property testFilename() As String
   Get
      Return filename
   End Get
   Set
      filename = value
   End Set
End Property
Private filename As String   

[C#] 
[EditorAttribute(typeof(System.Windows.Forms.Design.FileNameEditor), typeof(System.Drawing.Design.UITypeEditor))]
public string testFilename
{
    get
    {
        return filename;
    }
    set
    {
        filename = value;
    }
}
private string filename;       

[C++] 
public:
    [EditorAttribute(__typeof(System::Windows::Forms::Design::FileNameEditor), 
        __typeof(System::Drawing::Design::UITypeEditor))]
    __property String* get_testFilename() {
        return filename;
    }
    [EditorAttribute(__typeof(System::Windows::Forms::Design::FileNameEditor), 
        __typeof(System::Drawing::Design::UITypeEditor))]
    __property void set_testFilename(String* value) {
