Notes

  • This built-in setting is not displayed in the editor by Content Assist.
  • This setting only affects controls mapped to WinForms legacy classes which have, in turn, been remapped to TA classes in the applicable $ Class Maps file. Controls mapped to legacy classes which have not been remapped to TA classes are unaffected by this setting.
  • This setting will be deprecated in 2018. It is highly recommended that you use the WinForms command-line tool to update the class mappings for your legacy WinForms captured controls. (Learn more.)
