C# - Component used to create property window

Hi guys 'n gals,

I have a stupid question, but for the life of me, I cannot find the answer as I don't know what to look for...

Basically, you know when you view the properties of a component, you are presented with a type of grid, where the fieldname is uneditable, while the field next to it is where you enter in your settings (if that at all makes sense?)

Basically, I want to know what component that is, or how I could go about making my own, as I need such an item for my current project.


Cheers!

That is the PropertyGrid control.  By default it is not added to the ToolBox, but you can add it.

Would I be able to customize the content of it to display what I choose, rather than just display the properties of a specified object?

You don't have to make your own, you can use the same you see on VS.
If you don't have it on the toolbox but you can add it.

It's called PropertyGrid.
RightClick on the toolbox (where you have the other controls) and choose "Choose Items".
From the form that appears, on the .net tab, search for the PropertyGrid control.
Select its checkbox and you're done.
