Namespace:   System.ComponentModel
Assembly:  System (in System.dll)

public PropertyDescriptorCollection GetProperties(
	ITypeDescriptorContext context,
	object value
PropertyDescriptorCollection^ GetProperties(
	ITypeDescriptorContext^ context,
	Object^ value
member GetProperties : 
        context:ITypeDescriptorContext *
        value:Object -> PropertyDescriptorCollection
Public Function GetProperties (
	context As ITypeDescriptorContext,
	value As Object
) As PropertyDescriptorCollection



An ITypeDescriptorContext that provides a format context.


An Object that specifies the type of array for which to get properties.

Return Value


A PropertyDescriptorCollection with the properties that are exposed for this data type, or null if there are no properties.


Use the context parameter to extract additional information about the environment from which this converter is invoked. This parameter can be null, so always check it. Also, properties on the context object can return null.

As implemented in this class, this method always returns null.

By default, a type does not return properties. An easy implementation of this method can call GetProperties for the correct data type.
