I load classes in a propertygrid that I do not have direct access to change the ToString() displayed when the grid item is a collection.

The problem I have is when the property item is a collection, the value shows the full namespace but I would like to override the text value to something more user friendly.

Some of those collections have sub items and some use UIType editors.

Is it possible?

I tried everything I could think of from pgrid_ItemFormatting and from pgrid_SelectedObjectChanged

Hi Luc,

Thank you for writing.

You should be able to use the ItemFormatting event of RadPropertyGrid to change the text displayed for any item. Here is a line of code you can use inside the ItemFormatting event handler which would change the text in the value cell:
((PropertyGridItemElement)e.VisualElement).ValueElement.Text = "Collection";
I hope this will help. Feel free to write back with any further questions.
