public string UITypeEditor { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.String

A String that contains the assembly-qualified type name of the UI editor for the property.

In some situations, a simple value-to-string conversion that allows a property to be displayed as text in a property browser might not be adequate. Also, a string-to-value configuration style may not be adequate for some types. For instance, in the case of a color property, a visual representation is more desirable. A UI type editor can provide a visual representation of a property value in a property grid control, such as a design-time property browser. A UI type editor can also provide a custom user interface for configuring the value or values of an object of a particular type. For a complete sample, see the Windows Forms UI Type Editor Sample in the .NET Framework Developer's Guide.
