public ref class BaseProperty abstract : System::ComponentModel::ISupportInitialize
public abstract class BaseProperty : System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize
type BaseProperty = class
    interface ISupportInitialize
Public MustInherit Class BaseProperty

This represents the schema information (name, allowed values, and so on) of a Rule property. Because this is just schema information, there is no field such as "Value" to get/set the value of this property. If you manually instantiate this class, call BeginInit before you set the first property of the object and EndInit after you set the last property.
