Examples

The following example defines a control named MyControl. The class is marked with a DefaultPropertyAttribute that specifies MyProperty as the default property.

[DefaultProperty("MyProperty")]
ref class MyControl: public Control
{
public:

   property int MyProperty 
   {
      int get()
      {
         // Insert code here.
         return 0;
      }

      void set( int value )
      {
         // Insert code here.
      }
   }
   // Insert any additional code.
};
[DefaultProperty("MyProperty")]
 public class MyControl : Control {
 
    public int MyProperty {
       get {
          // Insert code here.
          return 0;
       }
       set {
          // Insert code here.
       }
    }
 
    // Insert any additional code.
 
 }
<DefaultProperty("MyProperty")> _
Public Class MyControl
    Inherits Control

    Public Property MyProperty() As Integer
        Get
            ' Insert code here.
            Return 0
        End Get
        Set
            ' Insert code here.
        End Set 
    End Property
    ' Insert any additional code.
End Class 'MyControl

The next example creates an instance of MyControl. Then it gets the attributes for the class, extracts the DefaultPropertyAttribute, and prints the name of the default property.

int main()
{
   // Creates a new control.
   Form1::MyControl^ myNewControl = gcnew Form1::MyControl;

   // Gets the attributes for the collection.
   AttributeCollection^ attributes = TypeDescriptor::GetAttributes( myNewControl );

   /* Prints the name of the default property by retrieving the 
       * DefaultPropertyAttribute from the AttributeCollection. */
   DefaultPropertyAttribute^ myAttribute = dynamic_cast<DefaultPropertyAttribute^>(attributes[ DefaultPropertyAttribute::typeid ]);
   Console::WriteLine( "The default property is: {0}", myAttribute->Name );
   return 0;
}
public static int Main() {
    // Creates a new control.
    MyControl myNewControl = new MyControl();
 
    // Gets the attributes for the collection.
    AttributeCollection attributes = TypeDescriptor.GetAttributes(myNewControl);
 
    /* Prints the name of the default property by retrieving the 
     * DefaultPropertyAttribute from the AttributeCollection. */
    DefaultPropertyAttribute myAttribute = 
       (DefaultPropertyAttribute)attributes[typeof(DefaultPropertyAttribute)];
    Console.WriteLine("The default property is: " + myAttribute.Name);
  
    return 0;
 }
Public Shared Function Main() As Integer
    ' Creates a new control.
    Dim myNewControl As New MyControl()
    
    ' Gets the attributes for the collection.
    Dim attributes As AttributeCollection = TypeDescriptor.GetAttributes(myNewControl)
    
    ' Prints the name of the default property by retrieving the
    ' DefaultPropertyAttribute from the AttributeCollection. 
    Dim myAttribute As DefaultPropertyAttribute = _
        CType(attributes(GetType(DefaultPropertyAttribute)), DefaultPropertyAttribute)
    Console.WriteLine(("The default property is: " + myAttribute.Name))
    Return 0
End Function 'Main

Remarks

Use the Name property to get the name of the default property.
