Future of IDesignerHost?

        Does anybody know (or event suspect) that the future holds for the System.ComponentModel.Design.IDesignerHost interface in future versions (post 1.1) of .Net?

    Our current product has a user-configurable interface and I have implemented a 'screen designer' using the IDesignerHost interface system (this has been the biggest technical challenge for me in the last year).  The IDesignerHost interface is not well documented, but I found a couple of helpful websites. 

    This has been a reasonably large investment in time and effort (about 40 working days) and I want to know the life expectancy in terms of .NET versions. I'd rather not have to go through it all again too soon.

    Anyone know anything about this?

    I need a really good Ecommerce host.

    Needs to have good space and bandwidth - NOT UNLIMITED!

    Needs to be a reliable host aswell, one that will keep its promises and always have the staff online and awaiting my questions/problems.

    Please list a few, then I will do research on them before I make my final decision.">

    Dr Herbie, IDesignerHost still exists in the .NET 2.0 framework.

    If you would like to try recompiling your project in .NET 2.0 beta 2 to see if there were any changes that affected your project between .NET 1.1 and 2.0, the .NET Framework 2.0 Beta 2 SDK is available for download on MSDN.

    Excuse me, hytechpro, but what does your reply have to do with the original post?
