Descriptor Filter Service. Filter Properties(IComponent, IDictionary) Method
Filters the properties that a component exposes through a TypeDescriptor.
public: bool FilterProperties(System::ComponentModel::IComponent ^ component, System::Collections::IDictionary ^ properties);
public bool FilterProperties (System.ComponentModel.IComponent component, System.Collections.IDictionary properties);
abstract member FilterProperties : System.ComponentModel.IComponent * System.Collections.IDictionary -> bool
Public Function FilterProperties (component As IComponent, properties As IDictionary) As Boolean
The component to filter properties for.
A dictionary of properties that can be modified.
true if the set of filtered properties is to be cached;
false if the filter service must query again.
This method is called when a user requests a set of properties for a component. The properties are added to the dictionary with the property names as the keys and the corresponding PropertyDescriptor objects as the values. Implementers of this service can add, remove, or alter property entries in the dictionary.
Notes to Implementers
false only when necessary, because repeated queries to the type descriptor filter service can decrease performance.
