Hi,

How do nested properties work in the PropertyGrid when created using XAML.
Want to see something like:-

- Level One
    
Property One
    Property Two
    Property Three
- Level Two
    Property One
    Property Two
    Property Three
     - Level TwoOne
          Property One
          Property Two
          Property Three
     - Level TwoTwo
          Property One
          Property Two
          Property Three
- Level Three
    
Property One
    Property Two
    Property Three

Regards

John

Hi John Howe,

I have prepared an example project that illustrates a nested properties scenario. Please, refer to it and let me now whether this solution meets your requirements.

All the best,

Hi Ivan
Thanks for the code.  That produces nested property grids and is not quite the accepted method of displaying these properties in a property inspector/grid.

The sort of thing I was looking for is in the attached image file nestedproperties.png, the propertyinspector is the standard .net control, I have also attached an image of the output from the code you sent

I kind of guess that this is not going to be possible in the inital release.  Not a show stopper, we can re-write using the treeview control and get somehwere close.

Incidentally when will there be some updated help files that include the new components for the Q2 release?

Regards

John

Hi John Howe,

Thank you for your feedback. Native nested property support is one of the features that we are planing for our future releases. As for the help articles for WPF, they will be uploaded in few days.

I would tend to agree with John. His NestedProperties.png is what we should get when one of the properties is a class.
Consider the analogy (or even compatibility) with C# property grids. They use 'TypeConverters' such as derived from ExpandableObjectConverter to implement nested objects.

Right now, the luck of this functionality is a show stopper on our project.

Hi Etienne,

 We do support this feature with Q2 for both manually-generated an auto-generated PropertyDefinitions. Here is a demo > PropertyGrid > NestedProperties and a help article on this matter.
