PropertyGridControl.DescriptionContainerStyleSelector Property

Gets or sets an object that chooses a property description style based on custom logic. This is a dependency property.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.PropertyGrid
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.PropertyGrid.v19.2.dll

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: StyleSelector
A System.Windows.Controls.StyleSelector descendant that chooses a style based on custom logic.

Expanded Remarks

A style that defines the presentation of property descriptions is specified by the DescriptionContainerStyle property. If you have more than one style that can be used to render property descriptions, you can implement custom logic to choose the required style. To do this, derive from the System.Windows.Controls.StyleSelector class, implement the SelectStyle method that returns a style which meets the required condition, and assign it to the DescriptionContainerStyleSelector property.

If both the DescriptionContainerStyle and DescriptionContainerStyleSelector are specified, a property description is rendered using the style returned by the style selector. If the template selector returns null, the style specified by the DescriptionContainerStyle property is used.

To learn more, see Appearance Customization.
