<CLSCompliantAttribute(True)> _
Public Class DefaultDistributionDesigner _
    Implements IDesigner
Dim instance As DefaultDistributionDesigner
public class DefaultDistributionDesigner : IDesigner
public ref class DefaultDistributionDesigner : IDesigner
public class DefaultDistributionDesigner implements IDesigner


You can override this designer to achieve custom designer behavior.

Each standard data generator that is numeric (Decimal, Money, DateTime, Real, Float, and the integer generators) has a Distribution property. The user can specify the Distribution property to generate data that approximates a statistical distribution curve. The standard distribution options are as follows: Uniform, Normal, Normal Inverse, Exponential, and Exponential Inverse.

One instance of the designer exists for each distribution that is associated with each numeric column that the data generation plan includes.

The default designer is responsible for the design-time behavior of the distribution, which includes the following:

  • Getting the names of the input properties for the Properties window.

  • Setting the default values of the input properties in the Properties window.

  • Validating the data that the user specifies in the Properties window.
