Where Is the PropertyBag Stored?

A UserControl stores its property values through WriteProperties in a PropertyBag object. The PropertyBag information is no doubt stored in the compiled EXE after compilation.

But what I do not know is where the PropertyBag info is stored while developing. I always assumed that the PropertyBag somehow was part of the FRX file, but I recently had a form with a UserControl, changed properties, and no FRX.

Where is the PropertyBag stored? Points also awarded for pointing me to the relevant KB/MSDN article...

In the form that contains your control. Open your form .frm file in the Notepad and you will see it.

A frx file will contain binary data (an image for example). The frm file will contain ASCII characters.
