    Is it possible to set a PropertyGridTextBoxEditor to be multiline?

    I have tried the following approach, but although the Multiline property does successfully get set to true, the textbox does not display as such.



    private void detailsPropertyGrid_EditorInitialized(object sender, PropertyGridItemEditorInitializedEventArgs e)
                switch (e.Item.Name)
                    case "Details":
                        PropertyGridTextBoxEditor editor = e.Editor as PropertyGridTextBoxEditor;
                        editor.Multiline = true;

    Hello Chris,

    Thank you for writing.

    The RadPropertyGrid items have a fixed size and they cannot be resized to take a multiline text box. You can create a custom editor to show a bigger element containing a multiline text box. You can read more on creating a custom editor in out online documentation.

    I hope this will be useful. If you have further questions, I would be glad to help.

    All the best,
