ICustomTypeDescriptor.GetPropertyOwner(PropertyDescriptor) ICustomTypeDescriptor.GetPropertyOwner(PropertyDescriptor) ICustomTypeDescriptor.GetPropertyOwner(PropertyDescriptor) ICustomTypeDescriptor.GetPropertyOwner(PropertyDescriptor) Method

Definition

Returns an object that contains the property described by the specified property descriptor.

public:
 System::Object ^ GetPropertyOwner(System::ComponentModel::PropertyDescriptor ^ pd);
public object GetPropertyOwner (System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptor pd);
abstract member GetPropertyOwner : System.ComponentModel.PropertyDescriptor -> obj
Public Function GetPropertyOwner (pd As PropertyDescriptor) As Object

Parameters

pd
PropertyDescriptor PropertyDescriptor PropertyDescriptor PropertyDescriptor

A PropertyDescriptor that represents the property whose owner is to be found.

Returns

An Object that represents the owner of the specified property.

Remarks

The GetPropertyOwner method retrieves the object that contains the property member that is described by PropertyDescriptor parameter. Typically, this object is required for the PropertyDescriptor.GetValue and PropertyDescriptor.SetValue methods.

This method should return an object that you can use as follows:

pd.GetValue(GetPropertyOwner(myPd));  

If myPd is null, your implementation of the ICustomTypeDescriptor interface should return the default object (typically, the base object that exposes the properties and attributes).
