Example

The PropertyGrid control supports adding new objects to collections using the collection editor. To pre-set certain properties for a new object or create an object without the default constructor, use the CollectionDefinition.NewItemInitializer property. Like PropertyDefinitionBase.InstanceInitializer, it should be set to an object that implements the DevExpress.Mvvm.Native.IInstanceInitializer interface.
