Remarks

In a designer host, when the user switches from Source to Design view, the markup source code that describes a control derived from the BaseDataList abstract class is parsed and a design-time version of the control is created on the design surface. When the user switches back to Source view, the design-time control is persisted to markup source code and edited into the markup for the Web page. The BaseDataListDesigner abstract class serves as a base class for components that provide design-time support for controls that are derived from the BaseDataList in a designer host.

The BaseDataListDesigner class properties provide the following functionality:

The ActionLists property returns a DesignerActionListCollection object, which typically contains an object that is derived from the DesignerActionList class for each level in the inheritance tree of the designer.

The BaseDataListDesigner class methods provide the following functionality:
