    Has there been any consideration for creating a Silverlight version of the infamous PropertyGrid?  I think this would be a very useful control to have in your arsenal and I know that there are competitors that do have such controls.

    Thanks in advance,
    Lee

    Hi Lee,

    Thank you for your feedback. The PropertyGrid, both for Silverlight and WPF, is in our To-Do list. Unfortunately it will not make it for Q3 2009, since we are done with our planning and a lot of other controls and features are on the plate. Thanks to your input, we raised the priority of the PropertyGrid and it will be included in our plans for some of our next official releases - most probably Q1 2010.

    Thanks again for your involvement.

    I want to thank you for your response.  I am sorry for publishing this same message in multiple places, but I just wasn't sure where to put it so that you would get it.  Thanks again!

    I second this request.  I'm hoping that it emulates the behavior of the SL2 shareware property grid and not the one rewored for SL3 and also a competitor because they are very lacking in quality, my biggest gripe (the reason I can't use them) is that they don't do nested classes, i.e. classes that have classes as properties.

    Love your stuff.

    As expected, this property grid did not make Q3.  Is there any chance of it making the Q4 or Q1 2010 release?  This is a very important part to a project that we are getting ready to start and I don't want to have to tell my company to go buy this control from somewhere else if it is in the near term schedule.

    Thanks for some great controls.

    Hi lkeel,

    We don't have Q4 release :), the next release is Q1.2010 (Feb-March). I still can not comment if this control is going to be included in the q1 roadmap. It dependas highly from the users. If there are more requests for - it is more likely that it will be done for Q1.

    You can ping us again right after the Q3 releass so we will be able to give you more details.

    Actually, this is probably the biggest hole in your product line.  If you think about it, all your customers are designing advanced apps rather than pretty gui stuff.  All advanced apps have many options/settings, just like blend does for example.  All of us need a property grid as good as, perhaps lower skill level than that of blend.  Therefore all of us will have to purchase this from a third party, then perhaps we will just go with them.  From a marketting standpoint you should offer a complete suite so that we don't need to develop relationships with your competitors.

    I love the way you guys design things, I'm sure you would come up with something super...

    Hello Valentin, hello Doug,

    take a look on our implemenation of the property grid:
    http://fd.sangha-project.com/

    the complete designer is based on telerik controls and is still under development.
    The property grid is based on the RadExpander control with two different styles for the outer and inner part.

    When you want to test arround with several objects, just click an object on the structure view pane.
    Check also the "add script" in the advanced property options. with python support for
    dynamic changing of properties.

    Lothar

    Valentin: I assume you mean you "can not" commit to a release date at this time.  :)

    Lothar: This is a pretty nice control and I may have to look into it further at a later date.  I was just REALLY hoping to bump this control up on Telerik's priority list as it does seem to be a hole in what is otherwise a great suite of controls.

    Thanks again,
    Lee

    Hi lkeel,

    The Property Grid for Silverlight is definitely in our plans. Still there are other tasks with higher priority and it will be included in a release after Q1 2010.

    I would also be very interested in seeing what Telerik can come up with. I see that ComponentOne have already released their version but I don't really want to move away from Telerik just for one component.

    I am using the C1 grid as a stop gap but it is not ready for prime-time, we can't use it due to bugs and missing features.  Still time for Telerik to get in there.

    Hello guys,

    We will be glad to see your "wishlist"  about the property grid control . Any ideas, wishes , requests about the API, the look and the behavior of such control will be taken in concern and highly appreciated.
    We can also try prepare some online samples with our RadGridView used in the role of a property grid.

    My wishlist is already defined and implimented in the form of the current dotnet propertygrid.

    C1 lacks:
    * Functional editing of collections/arrays.
    * Nested properties/classes - which can be overcome by wrapping their control and nesting your wrapper.

    One thing I would like is a property editor that would search for an interface on the selected object to provide annotations and editor functions.

    One of the key things that we face is that we have metadata that controls everything about the field.  Everything from the display name, read-only or not, and type of edit (date, textbox, numeric, combobox, etc).  It would be nice to be able to manually add fields to the grid with something like:

    Field f = new Field(name, displayName);
    f.ReadOnly=false;
    f.ControlType = Enum.Combobox;
    f.ValueRange = ArrayOfValuesForCombo;
    f.OriginalValue = 'Some Value';
    f.Value = 'Some Value';
    propGrid.Fields.Add(f);

    Also be able to get capture event when user changes a value on a field.  And also would like to be able to get all changed fields that showed OriginalValue & CurrentValue.  Something like:

    foreach(Field f in propGrid.ChangedFields)
    {
    //Save value back to object
    }
    //Save object

    I know this may be a little different than most uses, but this would definitely set your control apart if you could make this easier to do.

    I've been waiting for this control as well, both in Silverlight and in WPF.  Glad to hear that it is in your plans.  It would be nice if you would consider supporting the attributes defined in the System.ComponentModel namespace that affect the functionality of the WinForms PropertyGrid (such as DisplayNameAttribute, EditorAttribute, DescriptionAttribute, CategoryAttribute, etc.).  Note that these attributes are defined in the System.dll assembly, so they are not specific to WinForms, and so make sense in a WPF frontend as well.  I'm sure many development teams already have several of their data classes tagged with these attributes, so having a PropertyGrid in WPF that obeys them would be a treat.

    Thanks,
    ~Steve

    Hi Alexey Oyun,

    It is working fine on our end. Please try another browser or search the issue by its title - New Control: Property Grid. Make also sure you are searching in the issues which are still not scheduled for a specific release.

    Hi Kartheek,

    The Property Grid is not currently available in RadControls for Silverlight. It is in our development plans and will be available with one of our next major releases. Unfortunately we do not have any example showing a possible use of any of our controls as a property grid.
