The WPF PropertyGrid control, inspired by the Visual Studio object editor, provides an intuitive way to display and edit object properties, with the ability to sort, group, and search by property names. Various built-in data editors and custom editors help to manage the properties of various data types. Also, the category editor helps to group properties of similar data types.

Built-in editors

By default, each property is mapped to built-in editor controls based on its data type and is automatically generated. For example, a numeric value is mapped to a numeric text box control.

Using the custom editor option, users can map the object properties to any editor control of their choice. This mapping can be based on property name or its type.
