I want to predefine the "text" property of a class button derived from the class Button of system.windows.forms!

I want to drag and drop the button and instead of the text cBtnFirst1, I want a predefined text like "First".

The solution is quite involved for such a minor thing but, if you really want to, then you need to override the Site property of the base class and intercept the OnComponentChanged event relating to the Text property.

An example would be something like:
using System;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.ComponentModel.Design;

namespace WindowsFormsApplication1
{
    class cbFirst : System.Windows.Forms.Button
    {
        public cbFirst()
        { }

        private IComponentChangeService _changeService;

        public override System.ComponentModel.ISite Site
        {
            get
            {
                return base.Site;
            }
            set
            {
                _changeService = (IComponentChangeService)GetService(typeof(IComponentChangeService));
                if (_changeService != null)
                    _changeService.ComponentChanged -= new ComponentChangedEventHandler(OnComponentChanged);
                base.Site = value;
                if (!DesignMode)
                    return;
                _changeService = (IComponentChangeService)GetService(typeof(IComponentChangeService));
                if (_changeService != null)
                    _changeService.ComponentChanged += new ComponentChangedEventHandler(OnComponentChanged);
            }
        }

        private void OnComponentChanged(object sender, ComponentChangedEventArgs ce)
        {
            cbFirst btn = ce.Component as cbFirst;
            if (btn == null || !btn.DesignMode)
                return;
            if (((IComponent)ce.Component).Site == null || ce.Member == null || ce.Member.Name != "Text")
                return;

            btn.Text = "First";
        }
    }
}
