This class can hold a single DataTemplate for an inline editor. This is typically used to provide a different or custom editor for a property in the Properties window. The inline editor appears within the Properties window. To provide a custom editor that has a larger screen area and is not always visible, see ExtendedPropertyValueEditor.

The InlineEditorTemplate property returns the XAML template for the visual interface for this editor. This is typically provided in a ResourceDictionary elsewhere in the project.
