I am having my own Resources file for localization. 
Previously I used PropertyGrid from Xceed, but now I want to use yours.
Is there a possibility to use System.ComponentModel.DataAnnotations to set up a category with properties from .cs side?
Like for example:
     [Display(Name = "General_ScreenName", GroupName = "General_General", Order = 0, ResourceType = typeof(Resources))]
where General_ScreenName and General_General are my local variables from resource file.
I tried to search through examples, but none of them shows how to do it through .cs and with localized strings.

Thank you in advance!
