    Hello, Muhammad,      
    If I understand your requirement correctly, you need to allow editing the text in the PropertyGridDropDownListEditor. For this purpose, it is necessary to handle the EditorInitialized event and set the DropDownStyle property to DropDown

    private void radPropertyGrid1_EditorInitialized(object sender, PropertyGridItemEditorInitializedEventArgs e)
        PropertyGridDropDownListEditor editor = e.Editor as PropertyGridDropDownListEditor;
        if (editor != null)
            BaseDropDownListEditorElement element = editor.EditorElement as BaseDropDownListEditorElement;
            element.DropDownStyle = Telerik.WinControls.RadDropDownStyle.DropDown;
    If it is not the exact requirement, please specify in details what is the exact requirement that you are trying to achieve. Thus, we would be able to get better understanding of the precise case and think about a suitable solution.

    I hope this information helps.
