Property Value

Type Description

A DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.PGridOptionsCollectionEditor object specifying collection editor’s options.


By default, the standard WinForms editor is used to edit collection properties in the current PropertyGridControl.


Set the OptionsCollectionEditor.UseDXCollectionEditor property to true to use the DevExpress collection editor that supports the skinning technology.


The OptionsCollectionEditor property also provides access to the settings of the DevExpress collection editor, such as item search, multi-select, etc.

However, if neither the standard WinForms nor DevExpress editor for collections meets your needs, you can provide a custom default collection editor for a particular type using the PropertyGridControl.DefaultCollectionEditors property.
