Remarks

If the ShowRootCategories property is set to false top-level category rows are not displayed and regular rows that belong to the category rows are arranged as a linear list in alphabetical order. In addition, in this mode, the Property Grid Control doesn't permit rows to be rearranged using drag and drop or in code. For more information on runtime row reordering ,see the Using Drag and Drop topic.

Hiding root category rows is generally useful for the PropertyGridControl.
