QuestionComponentModel documentation [solved] Pin

I'm trying to create a Component that sits in the Forms designer component tray and contains additional subcomponents that can be selected and configured via the document outline view (or through a collection property of the main component).

I've looked at numerous code project articles and even peeking at some MS components that behave kind of like this (e.g. ListView), but I can't seem to get my sub-components to show up in the Document Outline.

The MSDN is non-helpful in this area, their "documentation" consists of is a 2 sentence blurb describing an esoteric example and then 10 pages of code that assumes an intimate understanding of the entire .NET component model.

Anyone know of a good source of documentation on this area, or better yet any tips on what I might try?

Thanks,
-Chris

[solved]
I figured out how to do it. In my main component, add a custom designer:

[Designer(typeof(MyDesigner), typeof(IDesigner))]
public class MyComponent : Component


Then in MyDesigner, inherit from System.ComponentModel.Design.ComponentDesigner and override a couple methods, shown below:
public override void Initialize(IComponent component)
{
   base.Initialize(component);

   _myComponent = (MyComponent) component;
}

public override System.Collections.ICollection AssociatedComponents
{
   get
   {
      if (_myComponent == null)
      {
         return base.AssociatedComponents;
      }
      return _myComponent.Subcomponents;
   }
}


Now my sub components are selectable via Document Outline, but suppressed in the component tray (so as to keep it tidy). Cool | :cool:
