Type Description
DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.PGridOptionsCollectionEditor

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

Remarks

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

PropertyGridControl_OptionsCollectionEditor_WF

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

PropertyGridControl_OptionsCollectionEditor_DX

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.
