Disabling the property grid's summary area

Grids for WPF Forum

Hi there,

Is it possible to completely disable the summary area/description in the property grid. I know you can chose by default that the user can't see the summary area with the IsSummaryVisible="False" but the user can just right click on the property and click Description to show the summary area. I want to remove it completely so its not possible to ever see the description area

Hi Jake,

If you change PropertyGrid.IsItemDefaultContextMenuEnabled to false, then the default context menu shouldn't show.

Please note that a side effect of that is that the user won't have access to the Reset menu item then.  But you can handle the PropertyGrid.ItemContextMenuOpening event and create a ContextMenu on the PropertyGridDataAccessorItem that is passed, and add a MenuItem on that context menu like:

MenuItem menuItem = new MenuItem();
menuItem.Command = PropertyGrid.ResetPropertyValueCommand;
menuItem.CommandParameter = this;

That should do the trick.
