System.Web.UI (system.web.dll)sealed class

This attribute is used when you are creating your own custom controls (typically by inheriting from System.Web.UI.WebControls.WebControl or Control). By default, designers like Visual Studio .NET will create an empty tag when you drag a control from the toolbox onto the design surface. This empty tag represents a control in its default state. Rather than using the empty tag, you can specify initial values and default HTML will be placed inside the control tag by using this attribute. For example, the attribute <ToolboxData("<{0}:MyLabel Text='MyLabel' BackColor='Yellow' runat='server'></{0}:MyLabel>")> configures the initial tag for a custom label control with a yellow background. Note that all occurrences of {0} in the supplied Data string will be replaced, by the designer, with the tag prefix associated with the MyLabel class.
