    We use the AutoGeneratingPropertyDefinition hook in a RadPropertyGrid to specify templates for the various properties we expose.  For a collection exposed in this property grid, CollectionEditor seems like a great model, but is there any sort of comparable mechanism to override or specify the property definitions that then appear in the CollectionEditor?  I don't see anything that looks immediately obvious in CollectionEditor or CollectionEditorPicker, and the CollectionEditor that ends up in our RadPropertyGrid doesn't seem to hit the property grid's AutoGeneratingPropertyDefinition event handler.


    Elsewhere in these forums, I see suggestions to override the complete Template of CollectionEditor; is that the only option in this case?  Are there any better/easier methods to specify DataTemplates for properties in a CollecitonEditor?

    Hello David,

    Currently, there is no easy option for customizing the property definitions. I logged the item in our feedback portal so that it can be voted for, prioritized and scheduled in our product backlog. 
    I also updated your Telerik points for the feedback. 

    Do you want to have your say when we set our development plans? Do you want to know when a feature you care about is added or when a bug fixed? Explore the Telerik Feedback Portal and vote to affect the priority of the items

    Hi Artem,

    As stated by my colleague, there is no out-of-the-box mechanism that we can suggest for this requirement. Please follow the provided link in the feedback portal, so that you are notified when the status of the item changes.

    All the best,
