Property Grid and ICustomTypeDescriptor

Grids for WPF Forum

It looks as though the new Property Grid no longer supports ICustomTypeDescriptor.  Our data models are driven based on this architecture.  Any idea on a way to work around this?

Hi Darrick,

In the old PropertyGrid we used to have a TypeDescriptorFactory and a TypeReflectionFactory. In the new PropertyGrid, we are effectively using a slightly revised version of TypeDescriptorFactory only since it's more powerful than TypeReflectionFactory. Thus I would expect your ICustomTypeDescriptor to work.

Did you try this out yet and run into problems or were you just asking ahead of time?
