'Declaration <AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.All)> _ Public NotInheritable Class BrowsableAttribute _ Inherits Attribute
[AttributeUsageAttribute(AttributeTargets.All)] public sealed class BrowsableAttribute : Attribute
The BrowsableAttribute type exposes the following members.
|BrowsableAttribute||Initializes a new instance of the BrowsableAttribute class.|
|Browsable||Gets a value indicating whether an object is browsable.|
|Equals||Indicates whether this instance and a specified object are equal. (Overrides Attribute.Equals(Object).)|
|Finalize||Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before the Object is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)|
|GetHashCode||Returns the hash code for this instance. (Overrides Attribute.GetHashCode().)|
|GetType||Gets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Match||When overridden in a derived class, returns a value that indicates whether this instance equals a specified object. (Inherited from Attribute.)|
|MemberwiseClone||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|ToString||Returns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)|
|Default||Specifies the default value for the BrowsableAttribute, which is Yes. This static field is read-only.|
|No||Specifies that a property or event cannot be modified at design time. This static field is read-only.|
|Yes||Specifies that a property or event can be modified at design time. This static field is read-only.|
A visual designer typically displays in the Properties window those members that either have no browsable attribute or are marked with the BrowsableAttribute constructor's browsable parameter set to true. These members can be modified at design time. Members marked with the BrowsableAttribute constructor's browsable parameter set to false are not appropriate for design-time editing and therefore are not displayed in a visual designer. The default is true.
When you mark a property with Browsable(true), the value of this attribute is set to the constant member Yes. For a property marked with Browsable(false), the value is No. Therefore, when you check the value of this attribute in your code, you must specify the attribute as BrowsableAttribute.Yes or BrowsableAttribute.No.
