Hi Dharmavaram,

Such customization would require the template of PropertyGridField to be modified. You may find the Editing Control Templates and the Implicit Styles topics useful on this matter.

So, within the Control Template of the aforementioned element there is a Grid with x:Name="PART_PropertyGridFieldGridN". It has 3 columns, respectively for the PropertyGridPresenter, the Label and the editor of each row. You can simply set the second column's(for the Label) Width to be zero and the visual appearance of the control should be as per your requirement.

Can you please give the approach a try and let me know how it goes?

Hello Dharmavaram,

A possible solution for this requirement is to use the FieldLoaded event of RadPropertyGrid. Through the event arguments of the event you should be able to apply the needed template only for a given PropertyDefinition. Please take a look at the snippet below.
private void propertyGrid_FieldLoaded(object sender,
    FieldEventArgs e)
{
    if ((e.Field.DataContext as PropertyDefinition)
        .DisplayName == "Count")
    {
        //apply the predefined template through the Style property of the Field
    }
}

I hope this helps. In case you need further assistance, feel free to update me.

All the best,

Hi Stefan,

    This won't help my requirement.I want one column in that row where I am going to show completely filed editor only without column display name.

Regards,

Nagasree.

Hi Dharmavaram,

In case I am not missing anything, the suggested approach would fit your exact requirement. Once you have the modified template of the PropertyGridField, you should be able to apply it explicitly to the Field of a particular PropertyDefinition. This can be achieved by defining the predefined ControlTemplate as a Resource and apply it as demonstrated in the How to: Retrieve Resources in Code article.

I hope this clarifies your concerns.
