member this.InDesigner : bool
Protected ReadOnly Property InDesigner As Boolean

Examples

The following example uses the InDesigner property when the NeedsTagInnerText method is called. When a control has this builder attached to it, the NeedsTagInnerText method determines whether the control is being accessed at design-time through a designer. The NeedsTagInnerText returns the value of the InDesigner property, and then the SetTagInnerText method is called. If the InDesigner property is set to false, an Exception is thrown. Otherwise, the inner text of the control is returned on the SetTagInnerText call.

			throw new Exception("The control is not in design mode.");
		else
			_innerText = text;
	}
