To get a property editor and a component editor to do the same thing, you need to write a common procedure that both editors call.

E.g.
procedure EditProp(MyComp: TMyComponent; ADesigner: TFormDesigner);
begin
  // Do something with the component...

  // Tell Delphi IDE that component has changed.
  ADesigner.Modified;
end;


The property editor's Edit method:
procedure TMyPropEditor.Edit;
begin
    EditProp(TMyComponent(GetComponent(0)), TFormDesigner(Designer));
end;


The component editor's ExecuteVerb method:
procedure TMyCompEditor.ExecuteVerb(Index: Integer);
begin
      case Index of
            0: EditProp(TMyComponent(Component), TFormDesigner(Designer));
      end;
end;
