A component editor provides a user interface for editing the properties of a control. Component editors are invoked from control designers by using the Property Builder menu item from the context menu on the control. Component editors that are derived from the BaseDataListComponentEditor class are invoked from designers derived from the BaseDataListDesigner class, and are used to edit the properties of controls that are derived from the BaseDataList class. For examples of such controls, see DataGrid and DataList.

The EditComponent method displays a component editor for the associated control, if one can be created. The GetInitialComponentEditorPageIndex method returns the index of the initial page to be displayed in the component editor.
