    /// <summary>
    /// Base implementation of the IView interface for windows forms
    /// presentation mechanism. Inherit your view classes from this one
    /// and override IView members if necessary.
    /// </summary>
    /// <remarks>
    /// This class also implements INotifiedView interface, which tells
    /// the views manager to notify the view on such events as view
    /// initialization and activation. Default implementation methods
    /// do nothing but descendant classes may override them to add some
    /// functionality.
    /// </remarks>
    /// <example>
    /// In this example we declare a view type by deriving it from the
    /// WinFormView class without a need to manually implement IView
    /// interface.
    /// <code>
    /// [WinformsView(typeof(MyTask), MyTask.MyView)]
    /// partial class MyView : WinFormView
    /// {
    ///     public MyView()
    ///     {
    ///         InitializeComponent();
    ///     }
