UITypeEditor Class

Definition

Provides a base class that can be used to design value editors that can provide a user interface (UI) for representing and editing the values of objects of the supported data types.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates that a UITypeEditor can be associated with an integer, double, or float property using an EditorAttribute to provide an angle selection interface from the Properties window in design mode. This example uses the IWindowsFormsEditorService interface to display a drop-down control in the Properties window in design mode. Compile the code and add the assembly to the Toolbox using the Customize Toolbox command on the Tools menu of Visual Studio. Create an instance of the AngleTestControl and click the drop-down button next to the Angle property in the Properties window to configure the property using the editor.

Remarks

The UITypeEditor class provides a base class that you can derive from and extend to implement a custom type editor for the design-time environment. Typically, your custom type editor interacts with the PropertyGrid control.

Custom type editors are useful in situations where a text-box value editor is insufficient to effectively select the values of certain types.

To implement a custom design-time UI type editor, you must perform the following steps:

  • Define a class that derives from UITypeEditor.

  • Override the EditValue method to handle the user interface, user input processing, and value assignment.

  • Override the GetEditStyle method to inform the Properties window of the type of editor style that the editor will use.

You can add additional support for painting a value's representation in the Properties window by performing the following steps:

  • Override the GetPaintValueSupported method to indicate that the editor supports displaying the value's representation.

  • Override the PaintValue method to implement the display of the value's representation.

  • Override the UITypeEditor constructor method if the editor should have initialization behavior.

Note

The UITypeEditor class does not support right-to-left (RTL) layouts.

For more information about enhancing design-time support, see Extending Design-Time Support. For more information on implementing a UITypeEditor, see User Interface Type Editors Overview.
