Hello Alex,

Thank you for the provided image.

The three dots will appear when you edit a property value. Clicking the three dots a context menu will appear which allows you to reset to the default value. If you want to hide it you can subscribe to the ItemFormatting event of the RadPropertyGrid control. Inside the event handler, you can hide the three dots button.

private void RadPropertyGrid1_ItemFormatting(object sender, PropertyGridItemFormattingEventArgs e)
{
    PropertyGridItemElement itemElement = e.VisualElement as PropertyGridItemElement;
    if (itemElement != null)
    {
        ((PropertyGridTextElement)itemElement.TextElement).PropertyValueButton.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Collapsed;
    }
}

Keep in mind that the user will still be able to see the context menu when clicking with the mouse's right button. You can disable it by subscribing to the ContextMenuOpening event and cancel it.

private void radPropertyGrid1_ContextMenuOpening(object sender, PropertyGridContextMenuOpeningEventArgs e)
{
    e.Cancel = true;
}

I hope this helps.
