How to distinguish design time from run-time?

I am using the code below, but I want to know is there a better way to check if I am in design time?
if( System.Diagnostics.Process.GetCurrentProcess().ProcessName == "devenv" )
			{
				return;
			}

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

1.) Call GetService(typeof(IDesignerHost)) and see if it returns something.

2.) System.ComponentModel.LicenseManager.UsageMode == System.ComponentModel.LicenseUsageMode.Designtime
