ControlDesigner.InTemplateMode Property


Gets a value indicating whether the control is in either template viewing or editing mode in the design host. The InTemplateMode property is read-only.

 property bool InTemplateMode { bool get(); };
protected bool InTemplateMode { get; }
member this.InTemplateMode : bool
Protected ReadOnly Property InTemplateMode As Boolean

Property Value

true, if the control is in either template viewing or editing mode; otherwise, false.


A Web server control is in template mode when a read-only template is currently being viewed or an editable template is being edited in a design host such as Visual Studio 2005.

The ControlDesigner class supplies a default ViewEventHandler object to update the InTemplateMode value when the template mode changes for the associated control. Custom designers that are derived from the TemplatedControlDesigner class can override the OnTemplateModeChanged method to perform additional processing when the template editing mode changes for a control in the design host.
