    Hi, I am a little bit confused with default propety attribute. I was looking a code, they said like this 

       [ToolboxData("<{0}:DateEditBox runat=server></{0}:DateEditBox>")]
       public class DateEditBox : CompositeControl
    What does default property means here ? it means, when I drag and drop this control from the control in Visual Studio, will this default property 
    attribute will a default value ? Can someone clarify me. on this.

    defaultproperty indicates the property of server control which would be selected by default when control is selected in designer of visual studio

    suppose, u create this control... and add reference to it in u r project... now, u drag and drop the control on the designer of u .aspx page

    the Value property of the control will be selected (highlighted) by default in the properties window of visual studio

    hope this helps...
