Thetype exposes the following members.

|Equals(Object)||Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|

|GetHashCode||Serves as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetService||Gets the service object of the specified type, if it is available.|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Remove||Removes a component from the .|
|RemoveWithoutUnsiting||Removes a component from the without setting Site to a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ValidateName||Determines whether the component name is unique for this container.|
The class is the default implementation for the IContainer interface.
Containers are objects that encapsulate and track zero or more components. In this context, containment refers to logical containment, not visual containment. You can use components and containers in a variety of scenarios, including scenarios that are both visual and not visual.
The components in a container are tracked in a first-in, first-out list, which also defines the order of the components within the container. Added components are appended to the end of the list.
The HostProtectionAttribute attribute applied to this type or member has the following Resources property value: SharedState. The HostProtectionAttribute does not affect desktop applications (which are typically started by double-clicking an icon, typing a command, or entering a URL in a browser). For more information, see the HostProtectionAttribute class or SQL Server Programming and Host Protection Attributes.
