PropertyGrid Select Value

I am currently able to change a PropertyGrid to select a particular GridItem
by iterating through the current selected GridItem parent.GridItem's

However, This selects and focuses on the Label of the GridItem - I want to
Select and focus on the value instead (even better would be to highlight
text if it is a text value)

Has anyone got any thoughts on how this can be done?

Hello John,

did you try sending the TAB key after you select the property ?

SendKeys.Send("{tab}");

Best regards,
