GridItem Class

Implements one row in a PropertyGrid.

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

public abstract class GridItem

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.


Any public static (Shared in Visual Basic) members of this type are thread safe. Any instance members are not guaranteed to be thread safe.
