      System::Drawing::Design::UITypeEditor::typeid)]
   property ICollection^ testCollection 
   {
      ICollection^ get()
      {
         return Icollection;
      }
      void set( ICollection^ value )
      {
         Icollection = value;
      }
   }
private:
   ICollection^ Icollection;
[EditorAttribute(typeof(System.ComponentModel.Design.CollectionEditor), typeof(System.Drawing.Design.UITypeEditor))]
public ICollection testCollection
{
    get
    {
        return Icollection;
    }
    set
    {
        Icollection = value;
    }
}
private ICollection Icollection;
<EditorAttribute(GetType(System.ComponentModel.Design.CollectionEditor), GetType(System.Drawing.Design.UITypeEditor))>  _
Public Property testCollection() As ICollection
   Get
      Return Icollection
   End Get
   Set
      Icollection = value
   End Set
End Property
Private Icollection As ICollection

Notes to Inheritors

This editor can edit collections that have an Item property. The editor can determine the type of the collection from the Item property, if it exists. If the collection does not have this property, or if you want to provide collections of more than one type, you can override certain protected members of this class to customize the editor to support other types of collections.
