Some questions about PropertyGrid control

Now I am developing a tool, just like VS.net Form Edition environment.
User can edit a component's properties by a PropertyGrid control.
Now I have some questions about this PropertyGrid control:
1. How to verify a property's validifity?
as you know, In VS.net, when we input a component name that is same with an
existed name in the propertygrid, an error message will pop up: "Invalid
property value".
Now, my question is, how to implement this verification?
Certainly, I can check every property's validifity by handling the event
PropertyValueCh anged. But I think it is not so good, because there are so
many properties, and it is a little complicated about logic.
Could you give me a classical solution about this problem?

2. How to change readonly attribute of a property at run time?
As we know, if we want a property to be readonly, we can implement it by
adding an ReadonlyAttribu te above the property. But how to changed it at run
time?
In some cases, a property's edition maybe make another property to be
readonly.
So how to create this relationship between properties.

I am a little comfused about propertyGrid control, Could you tell me a good
solution?
Any advice is appreciated.
Thank you.

Hi! Is it possible to use the PropertyGrid control without bind it to a control? As if it were a standard list? I would like to add "properties" in it but i never know what it will be. For now I use a DataGrid with 2 columns in it where the first one as the ReadOnly property property set to true.. it's quite ugly. if it's impossible then i'm open to any suggestions. :O)

Hi, Two questions about PropertyGrid: 1. How can I achieve that one value in a PropertyGrid is treated as a Password (like TextBox.PasswordChar behaviour) ? 2. If you edit a TabControl in VS.Net there is a section in the Properties Window in which you have two links to add and remove a TabPage (above the description). How can this be done?

How can I set the browsableattributes of the control that has been selected (selectedobject) by the propertygrid? Here's what I'm after - I want to open a form with a propertygrid in it.

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...

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,...
