    Hi -

    I want to create a custom editor that has just a textbox and a button.  The button will launch a form that allows me to select an object of type Product.  When I click OK on the form, I want to display the Name property of the object (in the text box in the grid, as read only), but I want the VALUE to be a different property, in this case ID.

    My object looks like:

    class Product

    {

       string Name;

       Guid ID;

    }

    How can this be achieved?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Hi John,

    To achieve this you can create a custom editor with a RadButtonTextBoxElement. You can start the new form directly from the editor class. I have attached a sample project that shows this. 

    I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to ask.
