Scroll Support for Description Area

Grids for WPF Forum

Posted 15 years ago by Boyd - Sr. Software Developer, Patterson Consulting, LLC
It would be nice if, by default (i.e. without custom styles/templates), the PropGrid used a vertical scroll area to show the content of the description area (scrollbar hidden when not needed, of course). I don't think other PropGrid controls have that feature, but it would be nice. I can't think of a good reason why you shouldn't be able to scroll if the content wraps beyond the visible space.

I haven't gotten too deep in the object model yet, so I apologize if this feature already exists.

Hi Boyd,

Originally, we were trying to duplicate the WinForms PG summary area. We are going to add a ScrollViewer though, since you're right that it should be viewable.

Good to hear! I always thought it was silly for that area to just get truncated. I like to keep it small so as not to waste space, so I often have to expand it to read all the content.
The latest build of this product (v23.1.3) was released 17 days ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
