Does the PropertyGrid use standard reflection or the TypeDescriptor API to get attributes from the linked object for the summary area?  The reason I ask is that I have a very large generated class that changes two to three times a year (it's the Reference.vb SOAP service class generated from a WSDL) that I link the PropertyGrid to.  I want to isolate the attributes I've added to the generated class specifically for use by the PropertyGrid into a separate class and use the TypeDescriptor API to point to them.  The process is described in this stackoverflow article: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/8316869/add-an-attribute-to-another-assemblys-class

Thanks... Rick

Hi Rick,

The WPF version does use type descriptors to get all of its data.  So I would hope that it would work for your needs.

Excellent.  Worked perfectly!

The latest build of this product (v2018.1 build 0675) was released 12 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
