Property Value

Type Description

true if the complex proeprty's root node is displayed, otherwise false.


To move a complex property that contains a hierarchy of nested properties to a separate tab in the Property Grid, apply the PropertyGridTab attribute to this property. In the attribute's constructor, specify the target separate tab as a parameter. If the target tab contains a single complex property, you can omit the root node and display only nested properties. For this, disable the attribute's ShowRootProperty property by passing false to the attribute's constructor.

ShowRootProperty = true


ShowRootProperty = false


The Customize the Property Grid in the End-User Report Designer topic provides an example on how to move a property from one tab to another by applying the PropertyGridTab attribute.
