ITreeDesigner ITreeDesigner ITreeDesigner ITreeDesigner Interface


Provides support for building a set of related custom designers.

public interface class ITreeDesigner : IDisposable, System::ComponentModel::Design::IDesigner
public interface ITreeDesigner : IDisposable, System.ComponentModel.Design.IDesigner
type ITreeDesigner = interface
    interface IDesigner
    interface IDisposable
Public Interface ITreeDesigner
Implements IDesigner, IDisposable


The ITreeDesigner interface derives from the IDesigner interface and provides support for flexibly navigating a hierarchy of related designers. With this interface, a programmer can supply a number of designers for the component, with the appropriate one being determined dynamically.

This interface is a simple extension of its base class, adding just two properties for navigating a tree hierarchy: Children and Parent.

For an overview of creating design components, see Extending Design-Time Support.
