PropertyGridControl() Constructor

Initiliazes a new instance of the PropertyGridControl class with default settings.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.v21.2.dll


public PropertyGridControl()


The following code creates a PropertyGridControl and makes it display its own properties.

By default, Boolean values are edited in the Property Grid Control using a ComboBox control with the True and False options. This example shows how to associate a CheckEdit control with the Boolean data type. As a result, the CheckEdit control will be used by default for editing Boolean values.

Firstly, a repository item (RepositoryItemCheckEdit) which corresponds to the CheckEdit control is created. Then it is associated with the Boolean type via the PropertyGridControl.DefaultEditors collection.

The following image shows the result. Notice that the created repository item is customized to represent traditional check boxes as radio buttons.


using DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid;
using DevExpress.XtraEditors.Repository;
// ...
PropertyGridControl pGrid = new PropertyGridControl();
pGrid.SelectedObject = pGrid;
pGrid.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
// Create a repository item which represents an in-place CheckEdit control.
RepositoryItemCheckEdit riCheckEdit = new RepositoryItemCheckEdit();
// Represent check boxes as radio buttons.
riCheckEdit.CheckStyle = DevExpress.XtraEditors.Controls.CheckStyles.Radio;
// Associate the Boolean data type with the created repository item.
pGrid.DefaultEditors.Add(typeof(Boolean), riCheckEdit);
