The ExtendedPropertyValueEditor type exposes the following members.


  Name Description
Public method ExtendedPropertyValueEditor() Initializes a new instance of the ExtendedPropertyValueEditor class.

The ExtendedPropertyValueEditor class can hold two DataTemplate objects, one for an inline editor and one for an extended editor. The inline editor provides a custom interface that appears within the bounds of the Properties window, and the extended editor provides an interface that appears in a new window.

The InlineEditorTemplate property returns the XAML template for the visual interface for the inline editor, and the ExtendedEditorTemplate property returns the XAML template for the extended editor. These are typically provided in a ResourceDictionary elsewhere in the project.

You should use the EditModeSwitchButton to invoke your custom ExtendedPropertyValueEditor, For a demonstration, see Walkthrough: Implementing a Color Editor.


The following code example shows how to use the ExtendedPropertyValueEditor class. For more information, see Walkthrough: Implementing a Color Editor.
