How would I achieve the same "look" as the property grid in MS Expression Blend (rounded category panels, expandable advanced properties, etc), is the actipro property grid completely customizable in this repect ?

Hi Mark,

You can certainly style the PropertyGrid to look more like the Expression Blend PropertyGrid, but it would probably require you to customize the ControlTemplate. We don't currently have any examples of this, but have a TODO item marked down for it. You can take the default Styles/ControlTemplates and tweak them to your needs and then include those in your Application resources.

Alternatively, you could simply tweak the brushes used by the PropertyGrid so the colors are similar (but without the round corners, etc). You can view the brushes you can customize in the Theme Browser in our sample application (under the General tab). Just pick the theme and then PropertyGrid, and then you can copy the brush keys and redefine them in your application resources.
