Rich Text editor for property grid

Grids for WPF Forum

I need to apply rich text to a property of type string in a property grid.  I don't see any built in editors that allow me to do this so I am assuming I need to create my own but I cannot figure out what all I need to do to accomplish this.  The property field in the grid only needs to have an ellipsis button to launch a model dialog that will contain my rich text editor control.  But ActiPro's editors don't seem to be designed similarly to how WinForm's works because when I create my own custom UITypeEditor derived class and attribute my property with it, it is never instantiated.

I looked through all the documentation Demo's and QuickStart's and don't see anything related to what I am looking for to get me started so any help would be appreciated.

If you are looking to do an ellipsis button, please see the "Property Dialog" QuickStart.  These are also described in detail in the "Grids / PropertyGrid Features / Property Editors" documentation topic's last section.

That same topic (along with a sample in the "Supported Property Attributes" topic) tells you how to use EditorAttribute to apply a PropertyEditor to a specific property if you don't want to do it in XAML.
