    This isn't exactly a telerik question but thought I'd give it a shot. I'm trying to port my win framework to wpf using your controls.  As a part of my framework, I have custom controls and components with specialized business properties and in WinForms, I would use the UITypeEditor attribute to specify a custom design time interface. Thay way, within Visual Studio at design time, I could give the user my own custom dialog interface for manipulating properties, picking a business object, etc.

    I don't see any way to do this with WPF. Is this not possible? In looking over your own controls, I don't see any custom interface anywhere. I would have expected something on the gridview but even there, it looks like it opens up the generic collection editor.

    Is it possible to have a design time custom property dialog editor that the Visual Studio designer will automatically use?
