Public Interface IControlDesignerAccessor


The property and methods defined in the IControlDesignerAccessor interface offer a convenient way for the control designer to access a control for passing and retrieving temporary design-time data. The interface is implemented by the Control class. Control designers use the implementation of this interface to access the control.

Temporary design-time data is not persisted with the control itself. To persist design-time data for a control, you should retrieve the contents of the UserData property and store them in a designer-specific location.
