    I am using 

    radPropertyGrid1.Items["Text"].Visible = variable;
    to hide or show properties at run time.
    The only negative side effect I'm seeing is that the Category doesn't disappear.
    Is there a way to hide the category as well?

    I've attached a picture of it visible, and of it hidden.
    The category is Motion System Locations.

    Hello Chuck,

    Thank you for writing.

    When you hide all PropertyGridItems for a certain group you should hide the PropertyGridGroupItem as well:
    public Form1()
        this.radPropertyGrid1.ToolbarVisible = true;
        PropertyStoreItem intItem = new PropertyStoreItem(typeof(int), "Integer", 1);
        PropertyStoreItem floatItem = new PropertyStoreItem(typeof(float), "Float", 1f, "Property storing a floating point value.");
        PropertyStoreItem stringItem = new PropertyStoreItem(typeof(string), "String", "telerik", "Property storing a string value", "Telerik");
        PropertyStoreItem dockItem = new PropertyStoreItem(typeof(DockStyle), "Dock", DockStyle.Top, "Property containing DockStyle value", "Layout", false);
        RadPropertyStore store = new RadPropertyStore();
        this.radPropertyGrid1.SelectedObject = store;
    private void radButton1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        radPropertyGrid1.Items["Integer"].Visible = false;
        radPropertyGrid1.Items["Float"].Visible = false;
        foreach (PropertyGridGroupItem groupItem in this.radPropertyGrid1.PropertyGridElement.PropertyTableElement.Groups)
            bool areAllItemsHidden = true;
            foreach (PropertyGridItem item in groupItem.GridItems)
                if (item.Visible)
                    areAllItemsHidden = false;
            if (areAllItemsHidden)
                groupItem.Visible = false;
                groupItem.Visible = true;

    I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
