// UI (such as a checkbox).
public bool LockColors
        return colLabel.ColorLocked;
        GetPropertyByName("ColorLocked").SetValue(colLabel, value);

        // Refresh the list.
'Boolean properties are automatically displayed with binary 
' UI (such as a checkbox).
Public Property LockColors() As Boolean
        Return colLabel.ColorLocked
    End Get
    Set(ByVal value As Boolean)
        GetPropertyByName("ColorLocked").SetValue(colLabel, value)

        ' Refresh the list.
