DesignTimeVisibleAttribute Class

Definition

DesignTimeVisibleAttribute marks a component's visibility. If Yes is present, a visual designer can show this component on a designer.

public ref class DesignTimeVisibleAttribute sealed : Attribute
[System.AttributeUsage(System.AttributeTargets.Class | System.AttributeTargets.Interface)]
public sealed class DesignTimeVisibleAttribute : Attribute
type DesignTimeVisibleAttribute = class
    inherit Attribute
Public NotInheritable Class DesignTimeVisibleAttribute

Remarks

The DesignTimeVisibleAttribute is a hint to the Designer. The Designer will ignore this attribute for components that have a UI presence. It can only be applied to classes.

The DesignTimeVisibleAttribute is most useful when you have a control that accepts child components. For example, the System.Windows.Forms.TreeView control's node items should not appear in the component tray because they are drawn by the System.Windows.Forms.TreeView control.
