WebPartZoneDesigner Class

Provides design-time support for WebPartZone controls.

Namespace: System.Web.UI.Design.WebControls.WebParts
Assembly: System.Design (in system.design.dll)

public class WebPartZoneDesigner : WebPartZoneBaseDesigner
public class WebPartZoneDesigner extends WebPartZoneBaseDesigner
public class WebPartZoneDesigner extends WebPartZoneBaseDesigner
Not applicable.

WebPartZoneDesigner provides design-time rendering of WebPartZone controls. It includes support for editable designer regions, templates, and auto-formats to allow a page developer to easily alter the appearance of the control.

The public AutoFormats and TemplateGroups collections provide quick formatting options for the page developer and can be safely overridden to change the default appearance of a custom control.

Notes to Inheritors: If you want to override the GetDesignTimeHtml method to change the design-time appearance of your custom control, make sure to use WebPartZoneDesigner.GetDesignTimeHtml and invoke the parent method before adding custom code, because that is the method that creates the rendering for the regions in the control. If you override WebPartZoneDesigner.GetDesignTimeHtml and do not call WebPartZoneDesigner.GetDesignTimeHtml somewhere in the method, your designer regions will not be rendered.

Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
