Hello,

I know one can use the ComponentModel.Category to set a category for a custom property. But how do I change the category for an existing propery without changing anything else of that property?

example: I want to change the property 'Enabled' from Behavior to Appearance.

How do I accomplish this?

Thank you!

I don't know why you would want to do that, but you might be able to create a custom class, and inherit from a class, and then override the property, but use the base implementation, and add the attribute that you wish to use.

How does one add base implementation to a property when overriding the property?

Simple example:


public class ListControl : ListBox
{
 
    [Category("Appearance")]
    public override bool Enabled
    {
        get { return base.Enabled; }
        set { base.Enabled = value; }
    }
}
