Making the designer ignore a form / control

Is there any (good) way to stop the designer trying to load a specific
form/control when I double-click it in the solution explorer? Basically, I
have some controls that either use generics or are base (inheritance) forms
best viewed in the code view. I looked at the attributes in
System.ComponentModel, but couldn't find much that helps...

I can add the following before my control declaration, which successfully
stops the designer displaying it (since the designer doesn't like a class to
preceed a form in the source), but it is not very elegant; ideally I want it
to just go straight to the code, as though I had right-clicked and selected
"View Code"

#if DEBUG
internal class StopDesigner { } // nasty hack to break the designer
#endif

??
