Category

Category rows do not display any data. They are used to group other rows that display the values of related fields. The PropertyGrid can display categories in the following ways:

  • expandable/collapsible category rows;
  • category tabs;

If the PropertyGridControl.ShowCategories property is set to Tabbed, you can display a custom glyph in the category header.

The table below lists the main properties affecting element behavior and appearance.
