I'm looking at your demo for the PropertyGrid Editor Attribute. MapEditorControl.xaml is a UserControl which is set as an editor in Employee.cs using

        [Telerik.Windows.Controls.Data.PropertyGrid.Editor(typeof(MapEditorControl), "Location", Telerik.Windows.Controls.Data.PropertyGrid.EditorStyle.Modal),]
        public string Location
        {
            get
            {
                return this.location;
            }
            set
            {
                if (this.location != value)
                {
                    this.location = value;
                    this.OnPropertyChanged("Location");
                }
            }
        }

 

However, when you run the demo the UserControl MapEditorControl sits inside another Window (see attached image). How do I access this window to set header text, icons and themes?

Based on the demo it seems I can only access the UserControl and so any implicit themes will only work from here onward and not on it's parent window.

 

Thanks

Hello,

In order to achieve your goal, you can use the Loaded event of your UserControl and find its parent (the window). Please check the following code snippet for a reference:
UserControl x:Class="RadGridView_WPF_AR_88.UserControl1"
             xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
             xmlns:d="http://schemas.microsoft.com/expression/blend/2008"
             Loaded="UserControl_Loaded"
         .
         .
         .
 using Telerik.Windows.Controls;
 public partial class UserControl1 : UserControl
    {
        public UserControl1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }
 
        private void UserControl_Loaded(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
        {
            var window = this.ParentOfType<Window>();
            if (window != null)
            {
                window.Title = "Some Title";
            }
        }

I hope this helps.
