I did it this way for now, but I don't like it because it is only comparing the type name.
if (objPropDesc.PropertyType.FullName == "System.Int16" .....)
But it works...
Any better solutions?
Type t = Type.GetType(objPropDesc.PropertyType.FullName)
if (t == typeof(short))
 // short is System.Int16
elseif (t == typeof(int))

elseif (t == typeof(Int64))
