For a full example of implementing smart tags, see How to: Attach Smart Tags to a Windows Forms Component.

public override DesignerActionItemCollection GetSortedActionItems()
{
    DesignerActionItemCollection items = new DesignerActionItemCollection();

    //Define static section header entries.
    items.Add(new DesignerActionHeaderItem("Appearance"));
    items.Add(new DesignerActionHeaderItem("Information"));

    //Boolean property for locking color selections.
    items.Add(new DesignerActionPropertyItem("LockColors",
                     "Lock Colors", "Appearance",
                     "Locks the color properties."));
    if (!LockColors)

                         "Back Color", "Appearance",
                         "Selects the background color."));
        items.Add(new DesignerActionPropertyItem("ForeColor",
                         "Fore Color", "Appearance",
                         "Selects the foreground color."));

        // (as a designer verb).

                          true));
    }
    items.Add(new DesignerActionPropertyItem("Text",
                     "Text String", "Appearance",
                     "Sets the display text."));

    //Create entries for static Information section.
    StringBuilder location = new StringBuilder("Location: ");
    location.Append(colLabel.Location);
    StringBuilder size = new StringBuilder("Size: ");

    'Define static section header entries.
    items.Add(New DesignerActionHeaderItem("Appearance"))
    items.Add(New DesignerActionHeaderItem("Information"))

    'Boolean property for locking color selections.
    items.Add(New DesignerActionPropertyItem( _
    "LockColors", _
    "Lock Colors", _

    size.Append(colLabel.Size)

    items.Add( _
    New DesignerActionTextItem( _
    location.ToString(), _
    "Information"))

    items.Add( _
    New DesignerActionTextItem( _
    size.ToString(), _
    "Information"))

    Return items
End Function

Remarks

If the includeAsDesignerVerb parameter is set to true, then this item is also considered a DesignerVerb; therefore, it will be added to the component's design-time shortcut menu. A list of designer verbs can be accessed through the designer's Verbs collection property.
