What does the Me.DesignMode

Hi,

what does the Me.DesignMode-Property turn back. I tried to set a
MsgBox(Me.Desig nMode) in my form's and control's Sub New(), but it allways
turns back 'false', even if the form or control is open in Designmode.

To set correctly the properties when changed in the property-browser while
designing I need to know if the control is in designtime or in runtime-mode.
Is there a way to manage this?

thanks, Alfred M.

Hallo Herfried,

vielen Dank für die Hilfe,

but I saw this article in Helpfile and the only description is:

"Gets a value that indicates whether the Component is currently in design
mode."

The DesingMode-Property allways returns False even if the App or form or
control is in designmode. I want to resize my control each time the user
changes a property belonging to the size or placement of the control. But on
runtime I want to do this only once for performance reasons. The statement
in Sub New()

DoResizeMe = Me.DesignMode

or

Dim DoResizeMe as Boolean = Me.DesignMode

outside the Sub New() does not function.

What I am doing false?

Thanks, Alfred M.

Hi, When I create a UserControl-derived object, I often expose various public properties.
