Property Value


true, if the control is in either template viewing or editing mode; otherwise, false.


A Web server control is in template mode when a read-only template is currently being viewed or an editable template is being edited in a design host such as Visual Studio 2005.

The ControlDesigner class supplies a default ViewEventHandler object to update the value when the template mode changes for the associated control. Custom designers that are derived from the TemplatedControlDesigner class can override the OnTemplateModeChanged method to perform additional processing when the template editing mode changes for a control in the design host.
