private void PrintIndexItem2() {
    // Creates a new collection and assigns it the attributes for button1.
    AttributeCollection attributes;
    attributes = TypeDescriptor.GetAttributes(button1);

    // Gets the designer attribute from the collection.
    DesignerAttribute myDesigner; 
    // You must supply a valid fully qualified assembly name here. 
    myDesigner = (DesignerAttribute)attributes[Type.GetType("Assembly text name, Version, Culture, PublicKeyToken")];
