The PropertyGridEditorPart control provides a generic user interface (UI) that enables users to edit custom properties on WebPart and server controls placed in WebPartZoneBase zones. The editing UI is provided for properties that are marked in the source code with the WebBrowsable attribute (from the WebBrowsableAttribute class). When a property is marked with this attribute, a PropertyGridEditorPart control creates the editing UI based on the type of the property, and uses a PropertyDescriptor object if needed to convert the value in each editing control to the type of the property.

The following code example demonstrates how to use the WebBrowsableAttribute attribute to mark a property on a Web Parts control as available to be displayed in a PropertyGridEditorPart control. This example is part of a larger example found in the PropertyGridEditorPart class overview.

[Personalizable(), WebBrowsable(), WebDisplayName("Job Type"), 
  WebDescription("Select the category that corresponds to your job.")]
public JobTypeName UserJobType
    object o = ViewState["UserJobType"];
    if (o != null)
      return (JobTypeName)o;
      return _userJobType;

  set { _userJobType = (JobTypeName)value; }
