public DataTemplateSelector PropertyDefinitionTemplateSelector { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A DataTemplateSelector descendant that chooses a template based on custom logic.


A template that defines the presentation of property definitions is specified by the PropertyGridControl.PropertyDefinitionTemplate property. If you have more than one template that can be used to render property definitions, you can implement custom logic to choose the required template. To do this, derive from the DataTemplateSelector class, implement the SelectTemplate method that returns a template which meets the required condition, and assign it to the PropertyDefinitionTemplateSelector property.


Both the PropertyGridControl.PropertyDefinitionTemplate and PropertyDefinitionTemplateSelector properties are in effect when the PropertyGridControl is bound to a property definition source via the PropertyGridControl.PropertyDefinitionsSource property. Refer to the Binding to a collection of PropertyDefinitions topic to learn more.
