These properties are design time only properties in VB. When your
control is hosted on a form, it is effectively in run-time mode.

For a more lucid discussion of this problem, and possible solutions,

Guide To The Perplexed)"

Well worth the price. Sorry I can't help you myself, I generally don't
do UserControls.
