Property grid, directory browse functionality


G

Guest

Hi! How can I implement Directory Browse functionality in the PropertyGrid
control similar to BackgroundImage or Icon in VS 2005 ?
I can not find any info on that. May be I should be more generic and ask how
I can lunch a custom form from the PropertyGrid control ? I searched for it
with no result.

Any idea/sample/url is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance,

You can implement your own UITypeEditor that shows a dialog instead of a
popup. In the editor itself you would show a file-open dialog.

You can then use a string property in your data object and decorate the
property with the EditorAttribute specifying your own UITypeEditor.

The PropertyGrid will do the rest...
