How can I enable AutoEllipsis of grid element, grid text and help area, I tried below (set in my form New() event) but I must be missing a flag somewhere.

grd.PropertyGridElement.AutoEllipsis = true;
grd.PropertyGridElement.AutoToolTip = true;

Hi Luc,

Thank you for writing.

I am not sure where exactly you want to set AutoEllipsis - what do you mean with grid element and grid text. Can you please indicate those areas on a screen shot and get back to me with it?

In general, the text of the properties is with AutoEllipsis set to true. To do that for the value of the properties, you have to use the ItemFormatting event:
void radPropertyGrid1_ItemFormatting(object sender, PropertyGridItemFormattingEventArgs e)
{
    ((PropertyGridItemElement)e.VisualElement).ValueElement.AutoEllipsis = true;
}

To enable AutoEllipsis of the help area, you need to set AutoEllipsis to true of the HelpContentElement. In addition, you might want to stop the text wrapping. Here is a sample
radPropertyGrid1.PropertyGridElement.SplitElement.HelpElement.HelpContentElement.TextWrap = false;
radPropertyGrid1.PropertyGridElement.SplitElement.HelpElement.HelpContentElement.AutoEllipsis = true;

I am looking forward to your reply.

Greetings,
Stefan
