Property Value

Type Description

A StyleSelector descendant that chooses a style based on custom logic.


A style that defines the presentation of property descriptions is specified by the PropertyGridControl.DescriptionContainerStyle property. If you have more than one style that can be used to render property descriptions, you can implement custom logic to choose the required style. To do this, derive from the StyleSelector class, implement the SelectStyle method that returns a style which meets the required condition, and assign it to the DescriptionContainerStyleSelector property.

If both the PropertyGridControl.DescriptionContainerStyle and DescriptionContainerStyleSelector are specified, a property description is rendered using the style returned by the style selector. If the template selector returns null, the style specified by the PropertyGridControl.DescriptionContainerStyle property is used.
