Display list of user defined objects in propery grid

Hi,

I know that to show class memebers in the property grid we need to
attribute each one of them with [Category("category name")].

But If I have a list, for example, of users (roughly) built in the
following way:

Class User {

public string name;
public int age;

}

private List<User> m_lstUsers;

and the m_lstUsers is the member I want to display in the property
grid, how do I do this?

When I attributted it with [Category("Mycategory")], then under the
"MyCategory" property I see something like <ClassName>.UsersListClass.
I hope it was clear enough.

Thanks!
