Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public ref class GridItem abstract

The GridItem type exposes the following members.

Protected methodGridItemInitializes a new instance of the GridItem class.

Public propertyExpandableWhen overridden in a derived class, gets a value indicating whether the specified property is expandable to show nested properties.
Public propertyExpandedWhen overridden in a derived class, gets or sets a value indicating whether the GridItem is in an expanded state.
Public propertyGridItemsWhen overridden in a derived class, gets the collection of GridItem objects, if any, associated as a child of this GridItem.
Public propertyGridItemTypeWhen overridden in a derived class, gets the type of this GridItem.
Public propertyLabelWhen overridden in a derived class, gets the text of this GridItem.
Public propertyParentWhen overridden in a derived class, gets the parent GridItem of this GridItem, if any.
Public propertyPropertyDescriptorWhen overridden in a derived class, gets the PropertyDescriptor that is associated with this GridItem.
Public propertyTagGets or sets user-defined data about the GridItem.
Public propertyValueWhen overridden in a derived class, gets the current value of this GridItem.

Public methodEquals(Object)Determines whether the specified Object is equal to the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodFinalizeAllows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetHashCodeServes as a hash function for a particular type. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodGetTypeGets the Type of the current instance. (Inherited from Object.)
Protected methodMemberwiseCloneCreates a shallow copy of the current Object. (Inherited from Object.)
Public methodSelectWhen overridden in a derived class, selects this GridItem in the PropertyGrid.
Public methodToStringReturns a string that represents the current object. (Inherited from Object.)

Grid items represent the hierarchy of the view into a PropertyGrid. You can use a GridItem to obtain information about the grid's state and contents.

GridItem objects should not be cached because they represent a snapshot of the state of the PropertyGrid at the time they are accessed, and grid activity might dispose them. The PropertyGrid often recreates GridItem objects internally without changing the view to the user.
