        }
        protected override int FindCore(PropertyDescriptor prop, object key)
        {
            // Ignore the prop value and search by family name. 
            for (int i = 0; i < Count; ++i)
            {
                if (Items[i].FontFamily.Name.ToLower() == ((string)key).ToLower())
                    return i;

            }
