Using EnumPropertyEditor

Editors for WPF Forum

I'm not sure whether this is a question about property grids or editors, but I'll go by the organization of the samples.

I added this to my UserControl.Resources, and I don't see my PropertyGridItem changing:

<propgrid:PropertyEditorsModifier x:Key="{x:Static propgrid:BuiltinEditors.PropertyEditorsModifierKey}">
		<propgrideditors:EnumPropertyEditor UseDescriptionAttributes="True" />

I also tried adding this to my PropertyGrid, with a similar lack of effect:

	<propgrideditors:EnumPropertyEditor UseDescriptionAttributes="True" />

What am I missing?

I forgot to note: I do have DescriptionAttribute applied to my enums.

It should be working if you have an Enum based property and a description attribute on each value.  For instance, I went into our Editors' PropertyGridIntegrationInterop demo and added UseDescriptionAttributes="True" to the EnumPropertyEditor there and I saw the description attribute values show up.

Thanks for the help, but I ended up going a different route. Maybe I can come back to this system later.
