Overview

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.


Virtualization in WPF PropertyGrid

UI virtualization allows the PropertyGrid to load items faster within the viewport.

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.

Custom editors

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.

Collection editor

PropertyGrid has a built-in collection editor that allows users to view, add, or remove items in a collection.

Category editors

Users can categorize one or more related properties and edit with their own custom editor. For example, all brush related properties can be edited using a single editor.

Categorized properties

Properties can be grouped based on categories. For example, “User Name” and “Password” properties are arranged under the “Login” category. These categories can also be collapsed.

Sorting properties

Users can arrange properties based on the property names, either in the ascending or descending order. You can also control the order of properties programmatically.

Filter properties with a built-in search option for easy access. In a single view, a properties filter would arrange the resultant property items sequentially. In a categorized view, a properties filter would arrange the resultant property items in categories.

No, our 100 WPF controls, including PropertyGrid, are not sold individually, only as a single package. However, we have competitively priced the product so it only costs a little bit more than what some other vendors charge for their PropertyGrid alone. We have also found that, in our experience, our customers usually start off using one of our products and then expand to several products quickly, so we felt it was best to offer all 100 WPF controls for a flat fee of $995/developer. On top of this, we might be able to offer additional discounts based on currently active promotions. Please contact our sales team today to see if you qualify for any additional discounts.

No, this is a commercial product and requires a paid license. However, a free community license is also available for companies and individuals whose organizations have less than $1 million USD in annual gross revenue and five or fewer developers.

A good place to start would be our comprehensive getting started documentation.

I am really thankful for the wonderful set of controls for WPF. I was able to deliver things on time and could focus on core business logic rather than control development.
