The ToolboxItemAttribute class provides a way to specify an attribute for a ToolboxItem. In addition to what the Attribute class provides, this class of object stores the type of the toolbox item.

The following code example demonstrates the use of ToolboxItemAttribute with the ToolboxItem class as a base class for a custom toolbox item implementation. This code example is part of a larger example provided for the ToolboxItem class.

[ToolboxItem(typeof(MyToolboxItem))]
public class UserControl1 : UserControl
<ToolboxItem(GetType(MyToolboxItem))> _
