Remarks

EditorBrowsableAttribute is a hint to a designer to indicate whether a property or method is to be displayed. You can use this type in a visual designer or text editor to determine what is visible to the user. For example, the IntelliSense engine in Visual Studio uses this attribute to determine whether to show a property or method.

In Visual C#, you can control when advanced properties appear in IntelliSense and the Properties window with the Hide Advanced Members setting under Tools | Options | Text Editor | C#. The corresponding EditorBrowsableState is Advanced.

NoteNote:

In Visual C#, EditorBrowsableAttribute does not suppress members from a class in the same assembly.
