How would you create a property editor based on type.  For example:  The sample code creates a property editor for the foreground property that uses the RadColorPicker.  But it is specifying the Foreground property in the data template.

What we would really want is for all color properties to use this particular editor?  We don't want to have to specify the property name.

Hi Jason,

You may try loading the DataTemplates at runtime to achieve this. I have prepared an example project that illustrates this approach. It is attached for your reference.

Hi, just to contribute with an idea:
I used the same method from the MVVM RI example of Microsoft Prism, using the prism DataTemplateSelector and some inheritance in viewmodels. That worked perfect and you can have 1 pair view-viewmodel for every type without using code-behind.
This could be a better approach depending on if you are using MVVM or not in your project.
