PropertyGrid control - need advanced help



Greetings all,

I am using a PropertyGrid control in my application and I'm having
trouble finding documentation on it. I have my basic PG built and can add
Properties of standard types (int, bool, string)... but I need to know how
to add more complex Properties (like other classes). One example that I
would like to replicate is the Font dialog window that you get when you
click the Font Property for a standard windows Form. I want to be able to
launch a dialog box to calculate and return an object to my property from
within the PropertyGrid.

Has anyone had experience with this?

Hi James,
Take a look at MSDN article
ms-help://MS.MSDNQTR.2003 FEB.1033/dndotnet/html/usingpropgrid.h tm
if you have MSDN installed on your machine

The same article can be found on the online MSDN at:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/de...ngpropgrid.asp

That is pretty much waht you migt need to use the PropertyGrid control.

I have a very basic program, but for some reason I can't get it to behave properly. What I want is a basic form with a TabControl that fills the entire form. The tab control should have 4 tabs with a single PropertyGrid control on each tab that fills it's parent's tab page's client area. Here's what I did. 1. Create a new project.

This works fine, but what I really want is to take the changes and lock them into a config file, such that this pc will then display all...

The propertygrid is a great control, but I would like to show a more descriptive text for the properties in the control. I tried to find a solution within the system.componentmodel but did not succeed. As far as I know I can only show the user the property name I use in my class, like "cubic_inches". I would like the user to see something like "Cylinder cubic inches". Is it in any way possible to associate a text to the name of the...

I have a PropertyGrid question. My task is to replace a legacy dialog box presentation with a modern one. The dialog itself allows the user to set configuration settings in our application, so it seems to me that a PropertyGrid is a perfect modern replacement. I won't bore you with the details with all the controls on the dialog since I'm only concerned with one issue. The legacy dialog contains a drop down list control that is...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
